Outdoors

Things change; that’s the way it is. There usually isn’t much you can do about it either, except maybe adapt. When it comes to walleye angling, there have been plenty of changes, including water that has been getting clearer and clearer.

Late summer walleyes can be a tough nut to crack but if you’re willing to take a road trip there is some red hot action to be had. Reservoirs like Oahe in South Dakota and Sakakawea in North Dakota can really heat up and might be included in your monthly planner.

As water levels are beginning to drop and return to normal, so are the crappies and bluegills.

I have noticed on the water lately that the schools of crappies and sunfish are now moving to their midsummer haunts and that includes staying suspended over deep water.

I’ve already been on some great fishing trips this season that have included Red Lake, the Northwest Angle and Leech Lake, with a lot more to come. Undoubtedly, the most memorable though will have been nothing exotic and as bare bones as you can get and involved a trip to a local lake to chase some little bluegills.

If I had to describe the perfect day to go walleye fishing it would go something like this: There would be a nice cloud cover with no precipitation, the wind would be from the southwest creating a manageable walleye chop and the water temperatures would still be cool enough to support my all-time favorite bait, the spot tail shiner.
