Fall Fishing Strategies

1 post in this topic

Myself and several buddies will be going on a week long, unguided bear hunt in the BWCA from 9/13-9/20. During the morning and mid-day we intend to do some fishing (primarily targeting walleye). We'll be base camping out of Sawbill Lake. I typically fish the St. Croix river and do a fair amount of lindy rigging for walleye. Fishing from a canoe will be a new experience for me.


What general strategies would you employ to catch walleye at this time of year? Typical depths? Presentations? Bait?

Any tips that you can offer would certainly be appreciated and I'm sure add to our overall experience in the BWCA. Thanks!

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
