Walleye fishing was good over the past week. The best areas were E of West Sister Island, around “L”, “C” and “E” cans of the Camp Perry firing range, NW of North Bass Island along the Canadian border, on West Reef, W of Rattlesnake Island, and along the Canadian border NE of Kelleys Island. Trollers have been catching fish on worm harnesses or with divers and spoons. Drifters are casting mayfly rigs or weight-forward spinners tipped with worms.
Yellow perch fishing was best 1-2 miles N of the Toledo water intake, near the turnaround buoy of the Toledo shipping channel, off Little Cedar Point, both SE and W of West Sister Island, around “B” and “C” cans of the Camp Perry firing range, NW of Rattlesnake Island and Green Island, on the dumping grounds E of Marblehead, off of Cedar Point, and 1-5 miles E of Kelleys Island. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
Largemouth bass fishing continues to be good in harbors and nearshore areas around Catawba and Marblehead.
