Western Basin

Walleye: Fishing has slowed in western Lake Erie with fewer anglers targeting walleye compared to earlier in the month. The best reports are coming from the gravel pit W of West Sister Island, NW of North Bass Island, and 8 to 10 miles E of Kelleys Island. Drifters are using bottom bouncers with worm harnesses or are casting mayfly rigs. Trollers were catching fish on worm harnesses fished with inline weights or bottom bouncers, and also on spoons fished with dipsy divers or jet divers.

Yellow perch fishing is improving. The best areas have been the gravel pit W of West Sister Island, E of the Toledo water intake, 20’ of water off of Ward’s canal, Green Island and Rattlesnake Island, around Kelleys Island, and off of Cedar Point. Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
