Conditions : STARVATION RESERVOIR: Great walleye fishing continues at the reservoir. For best results, try trolling a pink mini squid with a very silver dodger scented with garlic. This is the time of the year when walleye stock up for the winter months. They start feeding heavily on smaller forage fish and even on bigger rainbow trout. Please keep your limit of 10- to 14-inch walleye. Thinning the abundant walleye population will help yellow perch in the reservoir. To catch walleye, try fishing in 15 to 24 feet of water using Rapalas or jig heads tipped with worms. Jigs that imitate crayfish are also working well. The walleye are very aggressive and will bite on almost anything you cast at them. Fly anglers are finding success using size 6-8 bead head leeches and buggers in olive, black/orange and purple. If you catch a kokanee salmon, you must immediately release it. You may not possess kokanee salmon until Dec. 1. This closure protects the salmon during their spawning season. The water temperature is 73 degrees, and visibility is about six to seven feet. Rainbow trout will become more active as the water cools down. This spring, DWR biologists moved 250 crappie from Pineview and stocked them in Starvation to establish a new population of forage fish. If you catch crappie, please voluntarily release them so they can help establish this new population.
