Walleye fishing continues to be excellent with many limits being caught. Fishing has been best N of West Sister to the Canadian border near Middle Sister, 2 to 4 miles N of “B” can of the Camp Perry firing range, and along the Canadian border W of North Bass. Drifters are using mayfly rigs or worm harnesses with bottom bouncers, while trollers are using worm harnesses with inline weights or bottom bouncers and jet or dipsy divers with spoons.
The best yellow perch fishing in the western basin has been around Ballast Island and E of Kelleys Island. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
