Belews Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Wou won't find any walleye in this lake. Water temperatures are far to warm for them.
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Belews Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I found a catfish hole at the lat/long listed below. Every time we have hit this spot this summer, we would pull out at least 2-3 white catfish. Rig up a jig with a live worm and let it sit on the floor, jigging the bait every now and then.

If you see a bunch of bluegills hanging out around your boat, add an extra sinker to your line to get the bait out of reach before they steal your worm. They are really aggressive and quick here.

Most of the catfish I have caught here have been 18+ inches long and I've let them all go, so hopefully they'll be bigger next season!
