The heat wave on land has heated up the perch fishing on water. Look for limits in 34-42 feet of water off Avon Lake power plant stacks. Walleye fishing has also remained good ,with the inside bite off Cranberry over to Waterworks in Lorain and from Sheffield Lake to Avon Point. The boats running off the North side of the bar out to the weather buoy. Harnesses ,spoons and Reef Runners in pinks and purples are all working. Look for fish in the top 23 feet. White bass are also running Avon Lake and are hitting white or green wiggle spoons, hair jigs or plastics. Steelhead have started off shore ,North of the 40 line off the point but fish are scattered and you need to cover a lot of water.

 Local fishing has remained strong.
Walleye are being caught inside Lorain sand bar from Vermilion to Beaver as well as the North side of bar out to Vermilion Weather buoy. Worm harnesses in pinks and purples are still best. The in shore bite is still strong from Sheffield Lake to Avon Point. Reef Runners in a variety of colors fished off boards in the top 15 feet are best bet. Perch fishing is still fired up with limits being caught daily. 34-42 feet of water from Lorain to the point has had the best reports.
The big winners this week ,Ty and Logan Ritchie caught the prize winning fish in the Hooks for Hunger Tournament this past week. Local anglers teamed up with local businesses to raise a pile of cash for CRS a local charity that helps out residents that have fallen on hard times.

Traditionally this is the time steelhead fire up off Avon Point. Large silver spoons trolled right along the thermocline is generally the top choice. Stingers, Silver streak and LakerTakers are all good choices.

Walleye fishing has remained great in front of Beaver and off the Vermilion Weather buoy Reef Runners trolled deep in purples, browns and pinks are all catching. Bottom bouncing rock piles in 28 to 41 feet have also produced numbers the last week. Gold blades with purple and pink blades have been to producer.
Perch fishing has also stayed hot in 42 feet just East of Lorain.
