Walleyes

Walleyes rank near the top of the St. Lawrence River's most popular species list. The walleye population has increased dramatically the past two decades thanks to habitat improvements, stocking programs, and awareness promoted by groups including the St. Lawrence River Walleye Association.

Over the course of a season, schools of walleyes migrate from location to location in search of feed. Many walleyes are typically found near spawning tributaries and on adjacent structure in the main river. Summer walleyes favor mainland points and dropoffs, island points and dropoffs, and mid-river shoals. Autumn fish gather in large schools in deep water adjacent to summer structures.

Productive techniques include drifting crawler harnesses, casting tipped jigs, and trolling deep-diving plugs. Trollers often experience their best fishing after dark. Traditional walleye haunts include Chippewa Point, American Island, Ogdensburg International Bridge, Iroquois Dam, Ogden Island, Croil Islands, Long Sault Islands, and Robert Moses Power Dam.
