Summer temps produce hot walleye fishing at reservoir

Fishing at Marion Reservoir this weekend wasn’t too bad-in fact, for some it was excellent.

The conditions were windy and hot, but walleye were being found and caught.

One came in at 29 inches and weighed 71/4 pounds, another weighed more than 5 pounds, and then a limited-out group with the largest at 7 pounds.

Channel catfish have been hitting quite well with smaller wipers and white bass.

Anglers are encouraged to keep looking out for the wipers that were recently added last year.

This year they are just about the same size as a one- to two-pound white bass and not very distinguishable from the white bass, unless they check for the patches on the tongue.
