Fantastic Walleye Fishing Just West Of Ottawa
New Edinburgh Park
Anglers will find that jigging is an excellent technique for
Ottawa walleye. Spinning gear, with 6 to 8-pound-test mono or
braid equivalent, should do the trick. Bucktail jigs, standard
twistertails, and tubes are excellent choices, with chartreuse,
pink, white, black and perch being the recommended hues. Tip
jigs with minnows or crawlers for added bites, and rig plastics
weedless when fishing around heavy vegetation.
Crankbaits also work well, with the nod given to slender-style
baits in the 3.5 to 5-inch length. Cast or troll these lures
around likely walleye haunts, and stick with silver, shad, perch
and chartreuse colours for best results.
