Tributary streams, back-water areas, sand bars nd tail waters below dams harbor plenty of spring walleye. Eddies, current breaks and rocky ledges in the fast water offer consistent action during the summer. Ahhhhh...autumn. The river is all yours! The rapids continue to produce in early fall. As water colls, sandbars, shoreline points and island areas yield choice catches. Ottawa River walleye -- ummmm...good to the last fillet.
