Can anyone tell me how long it takes for a walleye to reach 18" long in CO? Also whats the smallest one you have seen caught? It's just that I've never seen a 5"-10"eye, do most of them just get eaten? I've been fishing with my daughter and she just has to know ,and dad can't answer that one. :-[

Thanks, Dan in Elizabeth

I used to catch a few of those 8" or so walleyes through the ice at Cherry Creek near the tower. We called them "cigars".

I've caught a few walleyes around 8 or 9 inches before at juniata reservoir, although most walleyes there are about 15". It takes different time for a walleye to reach 18" based on the lake, each lake can be drastically different, so you will probably never get a conclusive answer about that.

Catch em as small as 6-8" once in a blue moon. I caught one about 10" at Chatfield first trip of the year..They DO naturally reproduce here, and are much more plentiful in size, than you might thin wif oyu fish some of our reservoirs during the daytime, or witht he usual methods (hint hint!) ;)
