Walleye Spring spells walleye on river systems throughout Wisconsin. In 2009 my clients, family, freinds and I averaged 40 walleye a day, several exceeding 10 pounds! The week after Easter in 09' we had three 100+ fish days. Best bets for numbers of fish are the Wolf, Embarrass and Wisconsin Rivers. For trophies, I fish the Menominee, Oconto, Fox and Peshtigo Rivers. Peak fishing occurs during the months of March and April.
Spring isn't the only time to fish walleye on rivers. Summer offers smaller resident fish which can be quite agressive as shown above. This walleye took a 1 ounce Northland Reed Runner spinnerbait while musky fishing a Wisconsin River System.
