Western Basin

Walleye fishing was excellent over the past week (as of 6/18). The best areas were West Sister Island, West Reef and Northwest Reef (W of North Bass Island), E of Gull Island Shoal, and Kelleys Island. Trollers have been catching fish on worm harnesses or with divers and spoons. Drifters are using worm harnesses with bottom bouncers or are casting mayfly rigs.

Yellow perch fishing was good over the past week (as of 6/18). The best areas have been around the Toledo water intake, the northern cans (A, B, and C) of the Camp Perry firing range, SW of Green Island, 4 miles off of East Harbor, around Kelleys Island Shoal, and 2 miles E of the Kelleys Island airport. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.

Smallmouth Bass fishing has been very good around South Bass Island. Anglers are using soft-craws, tube jigs, and crankbaits.
