What stretch of river?

2 posts in this topic

Just wondering which stretch of river is producing the best walleye action? i am bringing my daughter up this weekend and would like to get on some fish (she gets antsy if we are not catching anything). I was up two weeks ago and fished near the wind sock and Birchdale and had limited success. Thanks for any suggestions!

we always start off at Birchdale, either try to the right kinda in the middle (find the edge of the current and anchor) or try and fish in front of the totem pole to the right. This time of year you should be able to catch fish any where in the river, just look for pockets or slack water. If you were up a couple weeks ago and did poor, i am guessing you were up at the same time the river was at its highest/fastest/dirtiest. This last weekend we did best with a pink jig w/ a white twister and two minnows-perferrably rosey reds. Good luck

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
