I never fished Leduc Reservoir before but always knew they stocked it every spring with rainbow trout. Over the years I have heard that some may overwinter and get to large sizes. I also read that this lake is notorious for sending anglers home with the SKUNK rather than a nice fat rainbow trout. So I made it my personal challenge to go there and catch some of those fat fish. I was determined not to take the skunk home with me. Since the reservoir is only 10 minutes from my In-laws farm it makes a quick outing. So I headed out early one frosty morning and launch my boat. I trolled and casted every lure known to man all over that piece of water for no bites. So around 2 pm I landed right where I launched and started to fish. Turns out that is where all the hungry fish were and I hooked up on seven but only got one on shore. Took him home for dinner and called it a day. Hope these tips can also help you catch some of those fish on the reservoir.
Huge Northern Pike caught fishing in Alberta Canada during the fall. This fish was caught in October during autumn on a chilly day, overcast and rainy. I was using a large Rapala Lure. This large pike was released to swim another day.
Successful Jigging Fall Walleye really starts out with the right location. Search out those red hot spots from the summertime. Those spots where everyone crowds, but now are left vacant do to the cold weather. These are likely the locations you will find some fall walleye concentrating on. Move around until you locate where a good number of fish are stacking up this fall. They tend to be over rocky areas on points and mid lake humps, and steep drops. Start with these locations the next time you head out on the lake and you might land yourself a bunch of fish!
