*Lake Erie surface temperatures are around 40 degrees. Be sure to check the
latest marine forecast for up-to-date lake conditions.*

Recent weather conditions have limited fishing opportunities.


Walleye have been caught between Huron and Vermilion when conditions have
allowed. Walleye from 18" to over 30" were caught on crankbaits trolled
behind planer boards.


Steelhead fishing was good during the past week. On the Vermilion River
fish were caught north of the route 2 bridge. On the Grand River, anglers
are catching fish from the short pier in Fairport up to Harpersfield dam.
Best locations have been from the lower sections of the Grand around the
uniroyal hole, pipe bridge and Rt 84. On the Chagrin River, anglers are
catching fish at Chagrin River Park. Rivers are rising slightly due to
snowmelt and some rainfall. Check with local bait shops for up-to-date river
conditions. The steelhead have ranged in size from 16 to 28". Anglers are
primarily using egg (spawn) sacks, but small spoons and jig and maggots are
also being used.
