Walleye fishing is heating up in area tributaries.
Walleye season is off to another great start.
Perhaps the numbers are not as great, but the average size is larger. Some really big walleye have been caught. Dan Seaman, at Elk Creek Sports Store, calls it a feeding frenzy in Lake Erie off Elk Creek.
Moving eastward, walleye fishing has been hot in depths of 20 feet to 35 feet between Trout Run and Godfrey Run. Anglers have been catching limits by early morning. Start in depths of 30 feet to 35 feet around the Point. Troll or drift between Shade’s Beach and Twenty Mile Creek in depths of 30 feet to 50 feet. Then in New York to Dunkirk swing out a little into depths of 40 feet to 60 feet. Lure choice does not appear to be important. A walleye troller fishing out of Dunkirk caught a brown trout.
Perch fishing in Lake Erie is nothing to shout about, but it can be had if someone wants it enough. Check at about 40 feet off Trout Run, in the range of 38 feet to 42 feet around the Point, and at about 35 feet to 50 feet off Shade’s Beach.
