On Thursday June 10th brothers Nicholas Lesyshen and Andy Lesyshen are Dubreuilville in Northern Ontario for the second stop in the Northern Ontario Walleye Trail Fishing Circuit to pre – fish for Saturday June 12th start of the 2015 Dubreuilville Magpie Walleye Derby that takes place on June 13th and 14th.
With the Magpie River offering anglers the opportunity to discover 20 miles of great fishing that can accommodate new comers to the sport all the way to most seasoned angler, the Lesyshen brothers ended up with lots of small 9” – 15″ fish but had trouble finding the good overs and finished with a 22″ fish as their biggest fish of the day.
Saturday there will be 120 two person teams competing for thousands in cash and bragging rights of being the winner for the first year tourney. The Magpie is a unique tournament if you have never fished a flooded river system. Compared to before the dam heights the water is up 20+ feet from the 80’s, said Nicholas.
Nicholas and Andy will be using techniques like slip bobbering, bottom bouncing and jigging due to the flooded timber where the walleye tend to seek shelter.
The Lesyshen told Saultsports that they have one more day of pre-fishing to check out a few more spots before tourney day and hope to eliminate more water and locate some quality fish.
Stay tuned for daily updates about the Lesyshen’s fishing adventure at the 2015 Northern Ontario Walleye Trail Dubreuilville Magpie Walleye Derby.
