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.

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.

There are a lot of great angling opportunities going on right now but you might not want to overlook panfish. It’s sunfish we’re talking about, and it’s prime time for finding and catching the largest of this species.

Even with the late spring, it looks like we’ll have open water on most if not all of our major walleye lakes. Last year was a different story and my opener was delayed by a week because the lake we wanted to fish on (Leech) was still locked up.

A person could have tried a southern venue and still have gotten out but that’s not what we wanted and delaying it a week wasn’t that much of a hardship.

You could wait for the big Minnesota opener to go walleye fishing, but if you’re the impatient type there are some great options with red hot action going on right now.
