Walleye: There have been very few walleye reports from the western basin recently. The best reports have come from the area around Kelleys Island Shoal. Expect walleye fishing to improve as water temperatures drop and migratory walleye move back towards the west from the central basin.
Yellow perch fishing continues to be good in the western basin when weather allows. The best areas have been N of West Sister Island, around Niagara Reef, between Green Island and Rattlesnake Island, off of West Reef, and off of Ballast Island. Anglers are using spreaders with shiners (emerald or golden) fished near the bottom.
