The catfish continue to bite in all areas of the river. We are seeing some nice large mouth bass being caught in many of the local ponds and reservoirs. Waseon  resivour is producing some nice perch and Swanton and delta are producing some bass as well.

Lake Erie

The Drift and Trolling Bites continue to be good
Surface Temp 73
Winds: NW becoming NE 15~20 knots forecast for today….
Water Clarity: visibility remains good

Bigger fish are still 11~13 miles out (past the Island) good numbers of fish reported and fewer throwbacks. Out front the shorts still out number the keepers by a long shot but there are pockets of big fish too.
East of Locust, Round, Flat Rock, Crib, and Cone reefs, are doing well. Sounds like whatever you like to run will catch fish right now. Dipsys and J-7’s, and Jets and Spoons, and Taildancers have taken off…. Bandits, 800’s, Bombers, Worm harnesses, Rattle Tots, and Flicker Minnows are also still pulling fish. Most are running 2.5 or faster.

Reports of good fishing around K and L Cans, Locust, Flat Rock, Cone and Crib reefs. Crawler harnesses and bottom bouncers or casting weight forwards still seem to be the ticket, Lots of shorts but still some good fishing.

Reports have started to pick up but still slow to come in. Have gotten some good word from A-Can, B Can and Niagara.

Have Fun , Be safe and good luck fishing
