Research showes broken bow oklahoma to hold good odds of catching a walleye. Do any texas lakes have a solid population? They are next on the hit list.

Very interesting 44 diesel and MUCH closer to home.

Google isn't showing guides, anyone have any suggestions?

Interesting. I may take the kayak down there and give walleye a try. Have never caught one, so any catch would be worthwhile.

Walleye are tough to catch on Wheeler Branch but I have seen several of the toothy critters taken. My suggestion would be to take a set up for LMB, too, so you don't come home empty handed. There are also SMBs in WB but I have only caught one near the dam in the rip rap.

It is, without question, the best kayaking body of water in the area with water on some days so clear, one can see down 12' or more. No motor boats also makes it a dream. And, as small lakes go, this one is 80 feet deep out near the dam and spillway.

One of my favorite places to fish is on the dam side off the little island dead straight ahead from the boat launch. There is a sudden fall off out 100 feet or so from the island and most of us have great luck along there.

Oh! Since water is pumped in to WB, it doesn't come in from a river or tributary source as its main feed (hence, the clear water), if by chance they are pumping in water over by the swimming platform, fish of all species in the lake will stack up there looking for a meal to float by.

I have researched Meredith. It was really good then almost dried up and the fishery crashed. Now it's on the rebound but I can make broken bow in 5 hours and Meredith in 8.

My home state of North Dakota. Walleye is all we fished for growing up. They taste great. Beautiful white filet. I think the heat in Texas is very hard on Walleye. Most stockings from what i have read have failed. Mededith Lake has been down. It is currently down 65 feet. http://www.lakelevels.info/?StateID=TX
I think Oklahoma may be closer and have a better chance. Wheeler Lake sounds fun. The Walleye spawn around 45 degrees. Today when i was out on Lewisville lake the temp was 50 degrees. So i think the Walleye have a hard time in Texas. Best tasting fresh water fish.

Believe it or not, Canyon Lake has a breeding population and has for some time. If you look back in the stocking history, you will see when they stocked them. I know a couple fellas that showed me proof last year that they still catch them here and there in the coves around where the Guadalupe comes in. They catch them deep off of rocks on plastic worms, nightcrawlers etc. That lake runs very cold which is why the trout do so well below it. Good luck!

I guide on Broken Bow for mainly bass and crappie. I can do some walleye starting in March.BB has a lot of walleye, also has a lot of water for them to get in. Easiest to catch in March, April & May.

I have seen big strings of walleye averaging more than 5 pounds per fish taken below the Long Lake dam west of Spokane, Washington.

Several lakes in New Mexico sport good numbers.

I read where Texas stocked millions of Walleye in the Highland Lakes. I bet a lot of folks don't fish for them. Might be some hanging on somewhere. Canyon Lake, as mentioned, never gets warm down deep and I don't believe its ever gotten close to drying up.

I can remember back in the day when Meredith was one of the Premiere Walleye lakes in the south, I hope now that the level is up, they come back in full force!!

This is a picture a customer sent from Up North...Kabetogama Lake in Northern Minnesota, long way from Texas!
Jared used a 1/4 oz UV Blast coated Sky Blue jig, #1 hook. Now that it is colder, he is using 5/16 & 3/8 ounce jigs on the #1 hook, as they are now deeper.

Broken bow lake is loaded with them. Big ones too, personally landed fish in the 20" class, friends have pulled out 5-7lb fish. Everything I've read says you have to fish for them feb-may.

If anyone is interested in Broken Bow walleye Carey Thorn is a guide out of Plano that fishes them (along with trout). He is a great guide.
