Walleye run is on in the Maumee River

With winter's snow melting under warm 60 degree temperatures this week, the annual walleye spawning run has begun on the Maumee River and in the Maumee Bay of Lake Erie.

No rain is in the forecast until tomorrow and a warming trend building into next, will trigger the walleye in full mass up the river to spawn.

In several days, walleye anglers will be crossing over to Bluegrass Island.The island likely would be accessible to walleye anglers and guests of Erie Quest Charters. Already, a few walleye were being taken from the areas of Orleans Park and the White Street Access.

And reinforcements - both fish and fishermen - were believed to be on the outskirts and closing. The water temperature stood in the lower 40s and was climbing, so the Maumee had to feel like a welcoming spa spring to the walleyes.

It still felt cold to anglers who hadn't hooked or landed a walleye in months, but they were eager to begin a new fishing year despite the temperature and a daily limit of four walleyes measuring no less than 15 inches. The best time for Trophy Walleyes is in April and May, during our spring season and again in the fall, in September and October. Some of these lunkers are 10-14 pounds. If you are looking for numbers and want to have a lot of fun, then come see us in May, June or July and feel the excitement when a walleye crashes your lure!

Erie Quest Charters utilizes time tested Lake Erie walleye tackle and techniques that work. Whether vertical jigging, bottom bouncing or drift casting - your trip will be one that you and your group will long remember for years to come.
