**2010 fishing licenses are now on sale and have been required since March 1, 2010** |
** The daily bag limit for Lake Erie walleye is 4 fish per angler until May 1. The minimum size limit for walleye is 15”. **
Open water fishing is getting under way in the western basin. Walleye have been caught by anglers using ice fishing techniques from their boat, and also by trollers. The best areas have been between Catawba and Green Island and also west of Catawba. Expect fishing to improve on and around the reefs and in other normal early spring locations as the water begins to warm.
