West Erie County, DWCO Randy Leighton, WCO Brook Tolbert
A slight slow down in the action on Lake Erie had a few anglers concerned, however, overall conditions and catches are still good. Perch are still holding heavily in 62 - 64 feet of water north of Walnut Creek and North of the Point off Presque Isle. Many limits are still being brought in.....when the fish are hitting. Walleye are are being brought in in fair to good numbers from the trenches. A few Steelhead and Lake trout are being caught in the second trench. Current water temperature off Toledo is 75 degrees, off Cleveland, 75 degrees, and off the Port of Erie, 76 degrees.
