Howdy whitedice and welcome to the forum. If you want to try walleye fishing with a fly rod, I think I can help shortcut you to getting them. Do a quick look around your local DNR fisheries site and see where you have close Walleye, then give me a call. I am going to PM you my phone number.

I caught this Walleye, and it was my first Walleye line class record on a 9' 5wt. four piece rod with a clouser. Your rod will work, but for big water you are going to need something you can get the fly farther out there.
By the way, have you ever seen a darker Walleye?
