Western Basin

Walleye: Good reports came from the West Reef/North Bass Island area and NE of Kelleys Island along the Canadian border. Drifters should use bottom bouncers with worm harnesses or cast mayfly rigs. Trollers should use crankbaits, worm harnesses fished with inline weights or bottom bouncers, or spoons fished with dipsy divers or jet divers.

Yellow perch fishing remains good with the size of fish remaining mostly from 6 to 8 with a few up to 12. The best areas have been the gravel pit W of West Sister Island, Green Island, Kelleys Island, around the Catawba green can, and off of Cedar Point. Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.

Smallmouth Bass were reported from the Western Basin Reefs and Kelleys Island Shoal. Use tubes and goby imitators on drop shots for best results.
