    Default Walleye fishing tips for Kasshabog Lake

    I hate asking this because people will hate telling me ��

    i have been searching for walleye on my beloved Kasshabog Lake (Ontario, Kawarthas area) for many years, I’ve purchased countless magical lures, live baits of all legal kinds, and every other piece of fishing gear imaginable. I have caught ZERO walleye in that lake, despite trying desperately. I have caught the elusive Muskie, and some huge bass (6.5 pounds this year!) but nary a nibble from a walleye. I even have the ‘adventure map’ for the lake.

    does anyone have any tips for here? I don’t eat them, so they will go right back where they came from �� we’ve been on this lake for over thirty years

    in spring I tried close to the north river, I’ve tried all around McDonald bay, bass bay, and nothing. I was thinking of hitting the dam with live minnows and a jig. Hope someone can give me a few tips! I want to show my little guy a walleye �� and my aunt too, who doesn’t even believe they’re there...

    The easiest time to catch pickerel is early spring and late fall and you're going to use water temp to your advantage. In the spring look for major feeder streams where water temps will be 3 or 4 degrees warmer than lake water. Temps around 57 , 58 degrees F will get these fish accumulated in these warmer waters and susceptible to jig/minnow presentations especially if you have a good feeder stream with a hole at the bottom of a set of swifts or falls.

    the north river is the only feed into this lake that I know of. It is shallow and hard to reach. Iím wondering if they may stay in one of the deeper holes somewhat a ways away from the shallow river? Iíve attached a pic to try and illustrate just how shallow the feed is

    After ice out and nearing opening season the lake water temps should be hovering around 55 degrees. That maps not very informative but if you have a steady stream of warmer water entering the lake find an area that you can access where the water is now warmer. Fish the usual places, rock shoals, sand bars in the evening, that sorta thing. You don't have to get to the head waters. I'm talking about how things work here in the north of the province so I expect water temps in your neck of the woods will be much warmer by opening season and this method might not work for you. But its a start.
    Last spring was a late starter for us. We started on our lake (55 degrees) and caught zero, not even a hit. We went up a feeder stream (temp 57--58 degrees) and caught over a hundred inside of 2 hours.

    Maybe the population is extremely small and not worth targeting?

    Do you actually know they are there to be caught?

    That was my first thought too.

    There was a massive stock numerous times, I know many who have caught them while fishing for bass. There is supposed to be an abundance of them ��

    Have you tried night fishing?

    My Buddy's GF has a cottage on that lake and we were there for a few days in September and October in 2018 and 2019.. We caught lots of bass both years... but no walleye and that is what we were after. My friend says his GF's family have caught walleye on the lake. I too used an Adventure fishing map to try find them ..unfortunately no success...

    Went there once for a week with the family. Stayed in the SW end of the lake. My wife got a nice walleye trolling a worm harness along a weed edge. She also got a big musky doing the same. We were targeting walleye, but that was the only one we got. We spent most of our time messing with the kids, and catching pannies and small bass.
