There are many locations in Colorado to do some walleye fishing. Cherry Creek Reservoir is known for some trophy-sized walleye. The best fishing is between May and June with a jig and bait. You can fish other months, but you will need a map to see where the walleye schools hide.

The best locations are near the island and the dam. The Boulder Reservoir is also good for spring walleye fishing.

The best times of the day are at sundown and into the night. The walleye are biting at minnows.

The Colorado River is another prime location for walleye fishing. The underwater rock structures and deadwood make nice hiding spots for the walleye.
