Top colors for walleye on Red Lake & Parker Lake

Yesterday I highlighted some of the top colors that out-produced the average for all species caught. Today I’ll start drilling down some specifics for each species. Let’s start with walleye.

Here are the top 5 colors pertaining to walleye:

Yellow & White          12 fish per hour

Orange                       8 fish per hour

Pink                            6 fish per hour

Chartreuse                 6 fish per hour

White                          6 fish per hour

These are certainly all colors that come to mind when walleye fishing. Orange is a color that is frequently cited in fishing articles about walleye. Studies have shown this color is most visible on the spectrum to walleye.

One neat thing we can do is throw another variable in the report to see how the data changes. How about the difference in color productivity for walleye between Red Lake and Parker Lake?

Here are the top 5 colors for walleye on Parker Lake:

Yellow & White          12 fish per hour

Orange                       10 fish per hour

White                          9 fish per hour

Firetiger                     6 fish per hour

Here are the top 5 colors for walleye on Red Lake:

Yellow, white, & blue make appearances on both lists, but it is interesting to see how the list changes between lakes. Blue isn’t a color I usually recommend, but there it is on both lists. I will have to do some more experimenting with blue combinations. Next time we’ll take a look at colors for northern pike.
