Sucker spawn

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any ideas as to when the suckers start running (by region of state)? Cooler spring this year or so it seems.

I wish it mattered to me, dang closed season. I generally see them in creeks about a week or two after ice out, and then its about 2 more weeks until they are done.

Most species of suckers spawn in water around 50 degrees. If you can fish it, it can be a pike bonanza.

When the weather stays cold in the spring for longer than normal. (Like we are having in Mn now)and all of a sudden it's 70 deg. outside the spawn can go very quick and if you are not keeping a close eye on water temps you may miss it. It seams like if we have a gradual warm up the spawn will last longer. Where I fish in northern Mn the suckers run just before and during the walleye run.
