Pyma in the Fall

I know the fishing can be great in the spring but how is the walleye fishing in the fall?

What surface temp are you generally looking for in the fall ??

Heading to the Allegheny river with the boy in the morning. Gonna try to scare up an 'eye or two there.

Re: Pyma in the Fall

I don't fish in the fall any more. Caught enough fish through the ice and early summmer to keep me in a meal of fish until the ice comes around again. Still have 22 meals to eat.

As for an answer to your question right after the fall turn over is the best time. The water temp will be stable from top to bottom and the fish can be anywhere from 2-30 feet deep. Remember that where you catch fish in late fall is the first place that you should look when we get safe ice. I would say somewhere in the mid 50's would put the fish back in a catchable mood. During the fall turn over the fish will be hard but can be done.

Re: Pyma in the Fall

Thanks for the info !!

Will have to keep tabs on the temps up there. It's about a 2 1/2 hr. drive for us to get there. But a really cool lake to fish.

FWIW....the fishing on the Allegheny was non-existant today. Nary a hit for either me or the boy. Tried everywhere the 'eyes shoulda been. Beats me. River temp averaged 61-63 degrees. Water was nice and clear. Oh, well.......nice (but cool) morning for a boat ride. Did get my primary gas tank emptied out in case I don't get out with my boat anymore this fall.
