Walleye Fishing in the Northwoods is almost year round event, closing for the spawning from the first weekend in March to the first Saturday May. Best walleye fishing will come in May and a good part of June. As the waters warm the fish will go deep and then you are looking at either suspended fish or fish in the mud flats, and generally the deepest areas of a lake. July & August can be tough but fish can be caught. After the Fall turnover fishing activity will pickup again. Once the ice forms it is always known that "early ice" walleyes is another time of good fishing and the time for trophy fish. When this ice is 4 to 10 inches the walleyes will remain in shallow feeding areas with weeds. Pending winter conditions they will stay shallow but the long winters will drive them into deeper water and the later part of the season usually is less productive.
