MAUMEE RIVER REPORT
WADING TO BLUEGRASS ISLAND IS POSSIBLE
TEMP- 78 Degrees
CLARITY- 12this week ahas been on the warm side but we did see some success as far as the cat fishing and yellow perch go. We saw many fish caught this Labor Day weekend at the buttonwood and bluegrass island access points. We also had reports of yellow perch being caught off shore in the Point Place river access areas. This is a great time of year to head out and explore the river and ponds of beautiful Northwest Ohio, feel free to stop here at the shop and wee can point you in the right direction to put you on some fish for the day.
LAKE ERIE REPORT

How: Most walleye have been caught by trolling with crankbaits or worm harnesses.

Fish have been caught in 7 to 9 feet of water in Maumee Bay, near buoy 5 of the Toledo shipping channel, east of West Sister Island near the war buoy, west of North Bass Island, Clinton Reef, “F” can of the Camp Perry firing range, south of Kelleys Island, on the dumping grounds east of Marblehead, and east of Kelleys Island.
How: Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
