Early Summer Fishing On The Winnipeg River

This weekend marked the beginning of summer on the calendar and summer fishing patterns. Water temps were averaging 64 degrees for the most part and we found walleye at their summer haunts in spite of the water levels which have risen 6 feet in the last couple of weeks.

Areas with some current produced the best  for us. The average walleye size we were catching was in the 20 inch range which was outstanding!

The hot colour spinner blade this weekend was pink. The biggest walleye this weekend measure 27.5 inches and was caught on spinner with a Gulp worm.

While fishing for walleye we also found some good sized smallmouth bass down deep in the current feasting on some really large minnows. The biggest was 17.5 inches.
