catching walleyes with a flyrod
Ive had some success with this using great big streamers. Anyone else catching a few? I even caught a catfish with a dry fly this year, i thought it was a smallmouth rising to mayflies and it was a catfish. Caught on a parachute adams.

heres a good short and fast reference manual with quick tips that I use all the time.

Good info, but please do not include links to other sites.

Although I have never caught a Walleye on a fly, I have caught several catfish on topwater Clousers setup for dry presentation.

Lately, I mostly fish saltwater and flyfishg is one of my "Go to" styles even for bigger game. Saltwater flyfishing requires bigger than big flies which I fling from an 11wt flyrod or from my 13' 6" spey rod. In most cases I use boomer line for added distance and flies that I tie onto 2/0, 4/0 and 6/0 hooks.

Most of my patterns are like jumbo streamers or jumbo clousers.

Great Walleye. This is one fish I haven't been able to catch yet but will keep trying.

Try some streamers or clousers. Those have proven to be good flies for Walleys. Try a sinking or slow sink tip for best results. Cool

I know many including me that do well with the fly rod. Using leech patterns, crawdad paterns an perch patern are what IS use. Sometimes bigger works bur many time average sized flies are just fine. Look for structure changes like rocky to sandy. And fish deep almost to the point of snaging.has been my best go to methods.
