I was curious if walleye moved up river in the fall any distance. Im referring to moving up tribs they would use in the spring for the spawn.
Not sure how walleye spawning in smaller lakes works but there is a small lake( 50-60 acres) in rock county that is producing 20+ inch walleyes using nght crawlers fished on the bottom.We are averaging 2-3 fish every day above 20 inches and 2-3 in the high teens.I am all about c&r but a few have ended up in other guys hot oil.
I regularly fish for and catch walleyes on the Rock River above Fort Atkinson in the fall using similar techniques used in the Spring. I'm not entirely sure if they are year round river fish that are just feeding heavy, or if they are coming up from Lake Kosh. Maybe someone else can shed more light on this.
