*Western basin fishing was limited over the past weekend (as of 10/18) due to high winds. Information below is from the prior week.
Walleye: There have been very few walleye reports from the western basin recently. The best reports have come from Kelleys Island Shoal and Gull 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 has been fair in the western basin. The best areas have been West Sister Island, Niagara Reef, off of Ballast Island, and N or E of Kelleys Island. Anglers are using spreaders with shiners (emerald or golden) fished near the bottom.
