Walleye fishing has been good in the western basin recently. The best walleye fishing has been from North Bass Island and Niagara Reef to “F” can on the Canadian border and near Starve Island. 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 “C” can of the Camp Perry range, north of the Toledo water intake, near Northwest Reef, off Gull Island Shoal, off of Kelleys Island shoal and Kelleys Island airport reef in 40-50’ of water. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish that have averaged around 8 inches with several catches averaging in the 9-10 inch range.
