Western Basin

Walleye fishing remained slow over the past week (as of 7/12). The best reports came from the Camp Perry reef complex including the eastern buoys of the range, and NW of Gull Island Shoal near the Canadian border. Fish have been caught by trolling with divers and spoons, and also on inline weights with worm harnesses. Fish can also be caught by casting mayfly rigs or drifting with bottom bouncers and worm harnesses.

Yellow perch fishing was good over the past week. The best areas have been around the Toledo water intake, Lakeside, and the SE corner of the Kelleys Island. Anglers are using spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom.

Bass: There have been good catches of largemouth bass reported from the harbors and nearshore areas from Catawba to Marblehead. Smallmouth bass have been caught around South Bass Island and Middle Bass Island.
