We continue to see some fantastic fishing for Columbia River Walleye. Yesterday we found most of our fish in just a few locations and concentrating on short trolls where were were getting bites was our key to success. Our fish over the past few days have been spitting up quite a few juvenile pacific lamprey. This seems to be a major food source for our Walleye this time of year. We have been using beads that resemble the color patterns of lamprey on our spinner rigs to sort of try and match the hatch, and constantly changing blade colors until we find the magic combination for the day. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors until you start getting bites.
We have a detailed article on how we go about fishing with spinner rigs for Columbia River Walleye here.
