Maumee River - 54F, water is cloudy & the level is low. Anglers are still catching good numbers of male walleye 15-22 with some limits. Anglers are also starting to catch an occasional white bass. Anglers are using floating jigs about 24 inches from to 1 oz sinker. Tip jigs with orange or green chartreuse plastic tails. Best areas are in the faster waters from the campgrounds upstream to I-475. Outlook is excellent. Fishing could slow down again if winds shift from the north or temperatures drop.

Sandusky River - 56F, normal and in good fishing condition. Anglers are catching walleye mostly males 18-20. We found female still in the river eggs by electrofishing but anglers have not been catching many female walleye. Best areas to fish are from Hayes Street Bridge to State Street Bridge. Best baits are floating jigs tied about 12 to 18 inches below a weight. Tip the jig with plastic tails chartreuse or any other bright color. We found some white bass in the river electrofishing on Tuesday night. Outlook is very good.
