Catch More Fish During Mayfly Hatch

Joel Prunty - Media Manager All-Canada Show - Reports from across Northwest Ontario and Central Manitoba say the Mayfly hatch is starting and will be in full swing next week.

Fishing during a mayfly hatch can prove to be difficult. However, if you change up your technique you can still catch plenty of fish. Fish areas where mayflies are hatching such as mud flats, and shallow where water temps rise first. Try larger baits using an aggressive approach such as tipping a jig with a crawler and using an erratic twitching movement. Remember walleye will be feeding on mayflies and this agressive technique will entice them to strike. We also like to troll crankbaits on the weed edge or just on the edge of mud flats during the mayfly hatch.

Do not use the annual “hatch” as an excuse; use your tackle to catch more fish!
