Walleye and Rainbow Trout Wheatley July 22 2011
The walleye fishing in Wheatley has been phenomenal this week. I fished Wednesday and boated 8 walleye and fished Friday. On Friday I boated an unbelievable 21 walleye and 5 rainbows and was back at the dock by noon.
The fish are real nice and a real handfull to get in the net when fishing by yourself and trying to manhandle 6-7 pound fish with one hand and net with the other hand. Video tape of some of those net jobs would be very interesting.
The big dipsy diver has been doing the damage at 60-70 feet out and occasionally I dropped back further. Copper spoon with orange tape, watermelon and my old favorite custom painted blue/pink/white as seen below are catching fish. I couldn’t keep the walleye off this morning to catch my rainbows.
