Lake Erie — Depending on conditions, anglers in recent weeks were catching perch in 45 to 55 feet, although the bite had dropped off from earlier this summer. Early morning and dusk were the best times to fish minnow-tipped rigs. Walleyes were reported in 55 to 65 feet near the bottom from the Ohio line to the Point. Some walleyes were hitting off Shades Beach in 30 to 60 feet. Crawler harnesses were the ticket. Shore anglers were catching some brown trout during the mornings’ first light and during last light at dusk. Fly-fishermen were successful with black and brown nymphs.
