May is wonderful for lots of reasons, but one of my favorites is walleye fishing. And it doesn't get much better than right now. Walleye are done spawning and move to shallow water to feed making them readily accessible and often predictable. Many fish are caught in 4-18 feet of water and a variety of techniques produce well. Some anglers like trolling with crankbaits while others like fishing a nightcrawler, either associated with a jig, spinner or Slow Death rig of some sort. When it's really on, the nightcrawler is generally the common denominator for those fishing live bait.
The 2015 Kansas Fishing Forecast ranks the Top 3 reservoirs for catching walleye as Webster, Kirwin and Cedar Bluff. Marion, El Dorado, Cheney, Glen Elder and Wilson reservoirs follow in descending order. However, other reservoirs not near the top, and smaller Kansas waters, can often produce good catches of walleye so don't rule those out, either.
May is a great month to chase these tasty perch. So whether you hope to set the next state record, or just enjoy fishing for fun, now is the time to get your 'eye on and give it a try. But you better hurry because there's only three more weeks left in May! If you can't make it now, the good news is June isn't too bad, either!
