Walleye fishing has been good in the western basin recently. The best walleye fishing has been from the Gravel Pit to “A” can of the Camp Perry range, and from North Bass Island to “F” can on the Canadian border. Fish have been caught by casting worm harnesses or weight forward spinners, and trollers have had success with spoons on jet divers or dipsys.
The best yellow perch fishing has been around “B” can of the Camp Perry range, Niagara Reef, between Green Island and Rattlesnake Island, and west of Rattlesnake Island. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish that have averaged around 8 inches with a few up to 10 and 11 inches.
