Crappie, perch, walleyes all biting around Ohio - Northwest Region Report
Cold Creek (Erie County)
Anglers wishing to pursue some trout should still be able to entice some bites along Cold Creek. The best fishing usually occurs during the morning and evening hours. Anglers wishing to use live bait should try minnows, spawn and worms. Spinners and flies are lures anglers typically use on the creek, as well. Try presenting lures and bait to fish sitting in slack areas of the current and in small pockets where fish tend to lie in wait for food to float past them.
Sandusky River (Sandusky County)
The river level is low right now, which is negatively impacting the fishing. Anglers still should be able to pick up some walleyes in the Roger Young Park and Walsh Park areas. White bass are starting to move up into the river. Anglers should focus in the deeper areas near Brady’s Island, the Sand Docks, and the mouth of the river. Look for walleyes and white bass fishing to pick up when the river level rises again.
Maumee and Sandusky rivers (Lucas County)
Fishermen have been steadily catching a few fish. Very few limits are being caught at this time. The river level remains low and is negatively impacting the fishing. The best fishing will probably be in the upstream areas of Bluegrass Island, Schroeder’s Camp Ground, Buttonwood and the rapids at Jerome Road. Look for another push of walleyes up into the river if water levels increase.
