walleye run

"Some guys are getting them pretty good, and some guys aren't," said Don Drogowski, Morenci, Michigan, on Monday. He was suiting up for a day on the river at Orleans Park with his son, also named Don, who lives in Manitou Lake, Michigan. Orleans Park is frequently cited as having some of the best fishing on the river during the run.
The walleye run occurs when the fish swim into the Maumee from Lake Erie to spawn as the waters warm. The fish can pack the river in the hundreds of thousands, and anglers usually catch tens of thousands of them in the Maumee each year. The first two weeks of April are generally considered the peak time for the run.
