Many anglers have expressed their lack of success this summer fishing for Walleye. This summer has been like previous years. When the water warms up the Walleye fishing slows way down. In years past anglers expected the Walleye to be on the bottom due to the warm water and had success fishing suspended up off the bottom. This might be the ticket to fill coolers again this year.

Dave @ Richter’s Bait & Tackle; filed 7-21: “We are in the summer slump in terms of the number of an-glers at Pymatuning right now; however for those anglers who put in the time and know what they are doing, fish are being caught. Chuck Baxendell stopped by over the weekend with a limit of walleye. An-other customer brought by a big walleye to be weighed; it went over 8 pounds. The night bite for wall-eye continues with long minnow plugs (mainly Bomber Long As) around the weedbeds. Catfish never seem to stop biting. More anglers are talking about largemouth bass this summer than in past years.” Laurie @ Duck-N-Drake; filed 7-21: “The fishing effort among my customers is uniformly aimed at wall-eye. Trolling a Shad Rap #5 or Hot-N-Tot in 17 to 23 feet of water is the key right now.” Hooker @ Hills Country Store; filed 7-21: “Another successful outing on Hooker’s Fishing Taxi. With many anglers saying they are having trouble catching walleyes and crappies this summer, I am reminded of an old say-ing “When all you have are lemons, make lemonade.” So we’ve been fo-cusing on the remarkable catfish population that thrives in Pymatuning. With the water levels still high and temps lower than usual for this time of year, the catfish filets from these Pymatuning fish are still firm and sweet. Just cut the filets into bite sized pieces, soak them in a little milk with lemon juice for about 5 minutes and then dredge them in some “SLAP YOUR MAMA” Fish Fry coating (available at Hill Country Store) and fry ‘em up. Serve with coleslaw and crusty bread for a truly enjoyable Ca-jun Fish Fry. ‘Le’ bon ton rule’ (Let the good times roll!)” (See photo) Ken Smith (Sharon); filed 7-19: “I fished Pymatuning on 7/14 in the Jamestown area. The crappie bite was good. I caught 15 crappies in 13 feet of water over brush. I used Bobby Garland Baby Shads on a 1/8-oz. head.” MahrKi Johnson (Linesville); filed 7-13: “The weather was warm and sunny at the Linesville Livery when I dropped a minnow down by a log and the only thing I saw was a white flash. I knew I had hooked a monster crappie, and reeled in a 15-inch white crappie. It was mid-afternoon so I continued to fish. As usual the catfish were biting along with crappies, bluegills and an occa-sional walleye. Panfish were being caught around drift wood and weeds. Catfish were everywhere. Walleyes, however, were being caught in deep wa-ter on nightcrawlers.”
