Shhhhhh...The Upper Delaware River has a sleeper of a walleye fishery.   


The best time to go after ol' marble eyes is in late October up until ice-up when the water temperatures are below the mid forties.   Walleyes can be found in deep holes throughout the river.   Your best bet for tagging a few 'eyes are overcast days and stained water.


These fish average between 18 to 24 inches with a few lunkers of six plus pounds caught during the season to make things interesting.  Jigging minnows and lamprey eels along with using Husky Jerks and Shad Raps are a sure sign of success with these toothy gamefish.


Walleyes can also be caught using Clouser Minnows with sink tip lines like this happy fisherman found out.

Take me to the river!
