How to catch walleye
Many Utah walleye anglers think the spring spawn is the best time to fish for walleyes. In reality, the best walleye fishing doesn’t start until after the spawn. And, in Utah, good walleye fishing can be found through the summer and fall. It’s time to start making plans to head for Deer Creek, Lake Powell, Starvation, Yuba and Utah Lake for some great walleye fishing this year. On Tuesday, March 19, a panel of top Utah walleye anglers will tell you how they catch walleye at the 21st Annual Utah Walleye Seminar. The free seminar starts at 7 p.m. in the Department of Natural Resources Auditorium, 1594 W. North Temple in Salt Lake City.
