Walleye fishing has been good in 25-30 feet of water from Huron to Lorain and also in open water E of the sandbar between Vermilion and Lorain. Fishing has slowed down in the Cleveland area this past week, but good fishing continues 14-18 miles northwest of Fairport in 75-78 feet (the Cleveland Hole) and 8-12 miles north of Ashtabula in 70-72 feet. Trollers are using watermelon, green, yellow jacket, perch, orange, or pink, blackjack, worm harnesses and spoons, off of dipsy divers, or jet divers and planer boards. Anglers are fishing down 50-60 feet.

Yellow perch fishing has been very good in 47-52 feet northeast of Edgewater Park, 42-45 feet northeast of Gordon Park, 58-62 feet northeast of Ashtabula and 55-60 feet north of Conneaut. Perch spreaders or perch and crappie rigs with shiners fished as far up as 6 feet off the bottom have been producing the most fish.

Steelhead are being caught by anglers trolling for walleye. The best location has been 14-18 miles northwest off Fairport in 75-78 feet (the Cleveland Hole) while trolling using black and purple or silver and blue spoons.
