Walleye fishing was good during the week of 7/27 in the western basin. The best fishing was around West Sister Island, nearshore off of Crane Creek and Metzger’s Marsh, around Niagara Reef, and W of West Reef, Green Island and Rattlesnake Island. Drifters are using bottom bouncers with worm harnesses or are casting mayfly rigs. Trollers were catching fish on worm harnesses fished with inline weights or bottom bouncers, and also on spoons fished with dipsy divers or jet divers.
Yellow perch fishing reports were limited. Try traditional areas such as Green and Rattlesnake Islands, Marblehead, Kelleys Island, Ballast Island and Cedar Point. Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
