Walleye: There have been very few walleye reports from the western basin recently. The best reports have come from Kelleys Island Shoal and Gull Island Shoal. Expect walleye fishing to improve as water temperatures drop and migratory walleye move back towards the west from the central basin.
Yellow perch: Windy weather limited fishing over the past weekend (Oct. 1-2). Prior to the wind the best areas had been NW of West Sister Island, E of Niagara Reef, around Rattlesnake Island, off of West Reef, off of Ballast Island, and E of Kelleys Island. Anglers are using spreaders with shiners (emerald or golden) fished near the bottom.
