    Default Maumee River in fall

    I have heard a lot about fishing the Huron river at night in OCT and NOV. I live closer to Toledo and wonder if the same pattern works in the Maumee river. (or bay)

    Fishing at night at Huron river is almost all bank fishing. You will see some boats off shore but not much if any in the river it's self . hot much room.

    There is a small walleye fishery in the Maumee River, a "resident" population. More people have started fishing it in recent years so we're finding out more about it. There is also a very minor steelhead run and even a few salmon from the upper Lakes have been caught over the years. Here's the local source for infomation.

    I have fished along the rocks at Sterling State Park a couple time casting cranks. Did ok. I think a lot of areas that have that rip rap rock can hold fish late in the year, especially if its a long stretch of it. I belive in the Huron River they cast from shore but boats work the area too. From a boat you can cast or troll but I believe it's mostly a crankbait bite. If I remember the deal is the walleye will push the bait fish up against the rocks to feed at night. As far as any specific areas around Toledo I'm not sure. Maybe along the Metzger Marsh area or even some places around the bay. That would be boat stuff.
