Central Basin

Walleye fishing has been excellent between Ruggles Reef and Lorain in 28 to 32� of water. A few fish are being picked up nearshore in 30-50� off Cleveland and Chagrin River. Anglers are also picking up fish 38 to 50� NW off Geneva and 47� NW off Ashtabula. Trollers are using crankbaits, spoons and worm harnesses off planer boards and jet divers and also flatline trolling. Shore fishing is picking up on the piers at Eastlake and Cleveland. The best times are in the evening and early morning.

Yellow perch fishing has been fair to good in 40-50� N off Cleveland and 40-50� NE off Wildwood State Park, 50 to 55� NW off Fairport and 49 to 54� N off Ashtabula. Shore anglers have been catching fish off the Headlands Beach and Fairport piers on the Grand River and in Cleveland off the E 55th and E 72 st piers in Cleveland. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.

Smallmouth bass fishing has been very good in 10 to 20� around harbor areas in Fairport Harbor, Geneva, Ashtabula and Conneaut. Fish are being caught on soft-crawls, jigs tipped with minnows, leeches, green and brown tube jigs, and by trolling crankbaits.

Based on the nearshore forecast the water temperature is 69 degrees off of Toledo and 55 degrees off of Cleveland.
