  7. The description of Milford states that the Wiper population has declined, but that they are still catchable. I went to Milford, June 4-8 this past year. In four ...more days, mostly trolling with lead line, I caught over 40 Wiper a day, averaging over 3.5 lbs each. On two of the four days, we had four fish hit all four lines, six times a day (quadrupled). We tripled-up on those days also, over eight separate times. In fact, we caught a Wiper and a Freshwater Drum on the same lure, at the same time. Anglers who are using electronics and mapping correctly, will find an over-abundance of fish, particularly Wiper, when combined with the right conditions. Choosing when to go to Milford, if you do not live close, will prove to be essential. Milford gets its walleyes from Pueblo, CO, one of my main fisheries year-round. Many of the serious Walleye anglers I talked with at Milford, stated a "known and talked about" frustration with targeting Walleyes, and ending up with Wiper on the line, "too often." I target Walleye using advanced tactics throughout the year and my experience was similar to the anglers I talked with. For more information about my angling or my experiences with Milford or other bodies of water, please feel free to contact me on Fishidy.
