The walleye bite and the safe ice to fish for them on, have both improved. Many decent keepers are being caught in the darker time frames of just before light and then again just after dark on the 5 to 7 inches of hard ice on the entire Saginaw River as of this writing. Although not really desired or targeted, those little walleyes are once again showing back up in the catch mostly in/on the river. While Most of the rivers keeper walleyes seem to be reported coming from the headwaters of the Saginaw near the Old Wicks park areas in Saginaw itself. Blue and Silver #5 and #7 Jigging Rapala’s tipped with a minnow head along with that newer Glow/Tiger Jigging Shad Rap, rigged the same way are having the best results so far this season on the river.
