Central Basin

Walleye: The walleye have scattered offshore of Ashtabula and Conneaut following four days of rough weather. Not many boats were targeting walleye so no report is available this week.

Yellow perch: Excellent fishing has been reported 44-52 N-NE of Wildwood State Park, 40-50 N of Chagrin River, 50 NW of Fairport and 38-42' NW of Geneva. Perch spreaders with shiners fished on the bottom produces the most fish. Anglers have been using golden shiners when emerald shiners are not available. Shore fishing off the Mentor Headlands breakwall and Fairport Pier has been spotty. Mornings and evenings have been best.

White Bass: Fishing has been slow off the Eastlake CEI breakwall and Mentor Headlands breakwall. For boat anglers, fishing has been good in the Cleveland area, look for gulls feeding on schools of shiners at the surface. The white bass will be below the shiners.

Channel Catfish: Anglers are catching fish off the Mentor Headlands breakwall at night using night crawlers. Fish are also being caught along the Grand River at the St Clair St bridge.

The water temperature is 66 degrees off of Toledo and 70 degrees off of Cleveland according to the nearshore marine forecast.
