Green Bay Spring Fishing
Green Bay spring walleye fishing typically means starting out river fishing. The Fox river, Oconto river, Peshtigo River and Menominee river. Spring fishing is mostly catch and release fishing. The Wisconsin DNR does this to protect the fishery from over harvesting while the walleyes come into the rivers to spawn. The potential to catch a trophy walleye in the spring is about as good as it gets. Walleyes in the 10-12+ lb range are not uncommon. Always practicing catch and release on these giant fish is a must. Snap some pictures, get some measurement and a replica can be easily made to last a life time. Once the fish leave the rivers they congregate in shallow areas around the river mouths offering great post spawn fishing opportunity. In my opinion Green Bay one of the best walleye lakes in Wisconsin. If your walleye fishing in Wisconsin Green Bay better be on your bucket list!
Green Bay Summer Fishing
Spring isn’t the only time to catch a trophy walleye on the bay. Summer fishing and fall fishing can be just as good. The fish migrate out of the shallows in summer towards the deeper water, but the opportunity to catch these trophy fish is good all season. Door county fishing can be great in late spring and summer once the water warms up. If you’re looking for an adventure in Wisconsin Green Bay has unlimited water to explore. Lots of time needs to be invested into finding fish but the risks can definitely be worth the reward!
