Walleye- 1st week of June

2 posts in this topic

Hey guys- I was wondering if anyone can provide some specific tips for cathching walleye on a regular basis on the Canada side 1st week of June. Last year we caught all the pike and bass anyone could ask for, but only a limited number of walleye. Mostly fished ash bay and alexandria bay. Caught some walleye in northwest bay. Any tips? Last year we took a day trip to the Pipestone/Clearwater chain and limited out easily of Jackfish fishing a jig and minnow. Would love to get into some good action on Rainy.... any help is appreciated. Locations, tips, techniques, etc. We will be staying at Camp Narrows.

Thanks

First of all welcome to FM, Pikehunter. Good to have you aboard.

Some of the best creel survey reports last year, in terms of numbers, were the first week of June on Rainy. Those reports however were from the north and northeast sides and the Minnesota side. Those who had the most success were casting light jigs in shallow water.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
