In the spring all the Walleyes are shallow and right up against shore and in 2 or 3 feet of water. As the spring fades into summer the smaller Walleyes in the 2 to 3 pound range will be found 3 to 5 feet of water. The big trophy Walleyes, which are almost always female, will stay down 8 to 12 feet during the day and then late evening will come up into the shallows. The Walleyes are also constantly moving. The majority are found in the bottlenecks of the river where there is some current. You will also catch them off rocky points leading into bays and off the weeds but in deeper water to avoid the pike. The Walleye go back and forth between areas of current and make stops at the structure discussed above.
Windsor Lake Walleye Fishing
Windsor Lake not only produces gigantic Walleyes, it produces vast numbers. The main water system consists of three main bodies of water that are just stuffed with Walleyes and gives you 20 miles to fish. For guests who have a more adventurous spirit; they can drive the boat through some narrow spots with current and have access to even more lakes.
How many Walleyes you catch in a day depends on factors such as weather, fishing skills and how hard you work. You should be able to catch 50 to 75 Walleyes in a day and on really good days catch between 75 and 100. You will catch lots of 2 and 3-pounders and during a week catch a couple in the 5 pound range. Even though the average size Walleye is a little smaller than Beteau Lake, there are still big Walleyes in this lake. Walleyes over 27 inches have been caught-&-released by our guests. This lake is not very deep and very easy to fish. You will basically catch Walleyes everywhere where there are rocks, weeds or current during the summer. In early spring, the Walleyes are either in the current or they are right up against shore on sandy beaches and sand bars.
We recently acquired this outpost cabin and it has hardly been fished in since 2009. Windsor Lake is known for containing extremely large amounts of Walleye. Back in 2006, it was reported that hundreds of Walleye were caught each day ranging from 20 to 25 inches with the biggest fish caught for the week being 27.5 inches. It was also reported that many Northern Pike were caught ranging from 30 to 37 inches. One can only imagine how many more Walleye and Northern are there now and how much bigger they have become.
