The river is really slow right now. I went to Buttonwood Sunday and didn't see any fish caught other than 1 walleye I got in the tail that popped off coming in. No white bass, nothing. Let's see what this early week rain does. The ground around here is still really damp, so maybe some run-off rain will make the river rise a bit. We need it.

The river is completely flat-lined at just above 3' on NOAA for the last few days and for the upcoming weekend. Schroeder Farms last camping/launch day is this weekend, so enjoy the last weekend that they're open. Fishing seems to be so-so. White bass are showing up as are some catfish and white perch. But people will continue to pick off a few walleye here and there. We shall see how long the walleye hold on...

Moving Forward

The river is doing really well, dropping slowly and warming up. This week will be good if you can find the fish. All wading spots will open up, and this weekend will be maybe the busiest weekend for the river so far this year. Many people will come in and enjoy the Mighty Maumee. Best wishes, and happy fishing!

Not April Fools

So, yes, the river is on the rise again Walleye Warriors. Welcome to April, and this is no joke. From what I have gathered this week, there were some great days on Easter Weekend and then again Wednesday and early Thursday. And now, up we go on water levels again! Have no fear! It's nice that this year we actually have some variation. Remember the last two years... * * * In at least the last two decades, the walleye runs of 2014 and 2015 ranked at the bottom of the pile. After ice, which lasted until the 3rd week of March, we clobbered em!...only to have the river stay low--on average--for the rest of the spring. Even white bass numbers in May were low for the last two years. So, this year we had a fast start. That's great! So what is next? * * * Remember that the Mighty Maumee tells US when to fish and not the other way around. We are at her mercy always. Say a prayer, have faith, and stay ready for some fishing in the next weeks that could be legendary. DBLDIP is in the house. Fisherboy is on stand-by. Birdman is watching. Whacker-H has you covered. And The Closer is closing in. * * * I'm Dr. Walleye. And THIS is the 2016 Maumee River Walleye Run!

Another push of fish

Happy Easter weekend everybody! The river crested overnight at 5.76 on NOAA from Friday to Saturday and is now slowly/barely on the drop as of Saturday morning. Once a day passes, you will experience dramatically better fishing next week! Look for plenty of Fish Ohio females getting caught next week for sure. Happy fishing!

Walleye Warriors, this is what we've been waiting for. The walleye are in the river, limits are coming out and people are enjoying the outdoors. Yesterday DBLDIP reported a PACKED river. Others I talked to nailed 'em at White St. Orleans was HOT in the high water Wed/Thurs. And now Buttonwood is picking up. So, it doesn't matter where you go. Access is opened up and people are everywhere! Enjoy fishing this weekend, and enjoy the fillets you'll likely need to cut!
