If you want to try out one of the best fishing locations in Northeastern Ohio, head to Lake Erie. With an average depth of 62 feet, this lake is the shallowest of all the Great Lakes. Due to its shallow waters, it warms up quickly in the spring and summer and ices over quickly in the winter. The milder water temperatures also allow the plankton to thrive, creating the perfect environment for fish. Those visiting Lake Erie can expect to catch walleye, yellow perch, crappie, smallmouth bass, steelhead, bluegill, and rainbow trout. Most locals head here hoping to catch one of the lake’s trophy-sized walleye, which are most active in July and August. At Lake Erie you can fish from the shore, bring your own boat, or charter a fishing trip.
