Elkhead Reservoir Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- nice to know there are walleye in elkhesd reservoir!! My tip would be to release all walleye so that the population will expand to a population that can tolerate selective harvesting. So the state stocked them? they don\'t do much right but this is a good thing! While im at it...take all the state money you waste on killing pike, smallmouths and whatever else...fish as indigenous as; rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout and create a fishery that will create revenue for the state. the elimination of smallmouths on the lower Yampa, after it had become a world class destination fishery is an example of the ineptitude and ignorance of the people in charge of our resources. The fact that no one can acknowledge that humans are at the top of the food chain, reveals the very ignorance that is behind the decisions being made.It is easier to drink coffee at the local diner than it is to make a decision that may or may not be controversial.Job security is more important than making decisions that may actually benefit humans and wildlife alike. So keep those walleye spawning!1View Tip Location on Map
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye spawn is in full swing now. With Walleye spawning grounds generally on gravel and rocky bottoms and preferring clean water. Try throwing reaction type baits up in the shallows. Rip-Rap, damns, rocky bottom points are perfect to hit. Try fishing some faster crank baits and spinners this time of year. As always fall back to the standard walleye fishing tactics, but it won?t hurt bringing out the bass gear in search for spawning walleyes. In this water temperature, always be safe on the water.
