There was very little fishing activity on Lake Erie over Easter weekend. Cold temperatures, snow and strong wind limited main lake access. Expect walleye fishing to improve as conditions stabilize. Jigging on the Camp Perry reefs and trolling the open water east of the reefs produced decent catches the week before Easter. As the water warms expect jig fishing to heat up on most of the Camp Perry reefs and in nearshore areas all the way from Maumee Bay to Cedar Point. Larger female walleye can be caught by trolling minnow imitating stickbaits in the open water around the reefs and islands.|
Surface temperatures currently range from 38 to 40 degrees.
