I seen a ton of spawning walleye today.

I went trout fishing in the East Branch of the Wallenpaupack Creek today and I didn't realize the walleye were spawning. I kept seeing large fish in the creek and couldn't figure out what they were. Finally I got close enough to one to see what it was. There were tons of them in there. They would stay in groups of 4 to 6 and seemed to like the fast water. It was really since to see. The trout weren't hitting good but I got to experience something I didn't expect.

Nice! Hoping to catch a few in the lake in a few more weeks. Problem is they are biting when I'm turkey hunting.

Yes, I've experienced the Walleye and sucker runs many times in the East and West branches there. It's an amazing sight!

This is who we are. This is what we do.

Re: I seen a ton of spawning walleye today.

I inadvertently caught one on a spinner and immediately let it go. It was around 14"-16". I also freed one that some how managed to get stuck under a rock belly up. I seen a fish laying belly up in the crevasse between two large rocks and figured it was dead. I was curious to see what it was so I grabbed the tall and it squirmed and pulled away. Realizing that it was alive I flipped one of the rocks it was stuck under and it spun right side up and swam away.
