Piedmont Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- the best walleye fishing is in the fall and spring my best luck i have is while using a mr twister or
a erie deerie tipped with shiner or bass minnow at depths usually around 10 ft they tend to stay
where water is at a cool temerature right now is the best time of year to get them at dawn
almost to dusk right around 6 to 8 is my best times of luck
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.

Piedmont Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
