Central Basin - Water temperature is 71* off Cleveland. Walleye fishing is
still good north of Ruggles Reef, Vermilion and at the sandbar 8 miles
northwest of Lorain. Anglers are using dipsy divers and jet divers with
spoons in silver/chartreuse, watermelon and purple, and worm harnesses five
to seven miles north of Eastlake in 52 to 60 feet of water, and north of
Geneva (2 to 3 miles out) in 45 to 50 feet of water. Trollers are also
picking up some steelhead trout in 8 to 9 miles out of Eastlake in 45 to 55
feet of water and 10 to 12 miles off of Geneva in 65 to 72 feet of water.
Walleyes are measuring 23 to 28 inches and steelhead 20 to 29 inches. Perch

Harbor (1-3 miles out), Geneva to Conneaut (1-2 miles out) and off
