High water in the fall?

4 posts in this topic

I wonder what this high water will do to the fall walleye bite. I found some spots yesterday that looked really good. Most of them are spots that held fish this spring. The bait fish are stacked up pretty good right now, so that should concentrate the eye's and some late season cats.

Kind of reminds me of 2004 and I did really good in spots that normally don't hold fish. Opie was thinking the same thing...

Was down at 35W bridge launch this morning! They seem to have most all of the storm junk out of there! Water is as high as it was this June/July.

Up north, the water level is a totaly differnt story!

The high water I dont think will deter the eyes from biting, I just hate fishing in the swift current. If the rain stops soon I will be out looking for the eyes, most of the places I fish for them they are there all year.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
