First Class Bass Charters Lake Erie Fishing Report

  • Water temp: 76 to 68 degrees
  • Smallmouth bass: Action is still steady in the Buffalo Harbor.  Bass in the 2 to 4 lb. range have moved up into the 6' to 13' flats in the harbor.  The weeds are starting to develop in these flats.  Try fishing a Booyah 3/8-oz. double willow leaf spinner bait, chartreuse blades and chartreuse skirts, over the top of the weeds.
  • Walleye:  The walleye fishing slowed down the first of the week at Smokes Creek.  There was a lot of fishing pressure over the weekend at Smokes.  Look for the walleye to start moving into deeper water.  Fish areas in the 40' depths.  Places to look: Seneca Shoals and Myers Reef.
  • Perch:  The perch fishing isn't as strong close to the Buffalo Harbor as it was earlier in the year.  The better fishing is moving west toward Cattaraugus Creek.  Look for fish in the 35' to 45' areas near Seneca Shoals.  Also try the deeper waters off of Smokes Creek.
