They go to the west end of the lake where they over-winter and are then there in early spring to spawn. Some also go up the Detroit River to L. Saint Clair.

Walleye run
According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the annual walleye run up the Maumee River is one of the largest migrations of riverbound walleyes east of the Mississippi. The migration of the walleye normally starts in early March and runs through the end of April. Although the first week of April is "historically" the peak of the migration, Mother Nature normally dictates when the actual peak takes place. When river flows rise due to snow melt-off and the river water temperature reaches 40 - 50 degrees Fahrenheit, the resident population of walleyes welcome their relatives from the Western end of Lake Erie's waters and also from the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair in Michigan. Although you will see boats on the river during the spring migration, by far the most popular method of fishing for these walleye is by wading out into the river and casting.

Reserve a day for us in April Chip; we'll be back. Hopefully we get a better April/May next year (don't think it could be worse than this year's weather). Maybe you could install seatbelts over the winter, just in case I feel the urge to jump again...
