Fishing for Walleye in B.C. Near the Kootenay river

At Columbia river where it joins the Kootenay river, fishing for walleye is great fun. You will need a boat at this spot. The current can be strong and rises when the dam lets out water so the conditions can change. The technique that can be used from an anchored boat, is using spinner setup with walking weights. This setup is used with dew worms. Just let it sit on bottom and let spin, wait,watch and look out... bang! Fish on. The spinner has a pill float which keeps it off the bottom. Remember all rivers in B.C. are single barbless.
I went September long weekend. One for the boats I saw someone get a walleye close to 7 lbs. Jigs can be used also.
