Fishing Report Lake Erie Leamington June 22
Fishing near Leamington has been a bit slow this week. Late day has been best. Not to worry – after 25 years of watching, I beleive strongly in the solunar tables and moon effect on fishing. We are in a poor moon period but will pull out shortly and move into a couple of good weeks. People are streaming into Leamington marina early this morning (Saturday). Should be a good indicator where the best activity is currently. I don’t have a hotspot to give you firsthand but down near the end of Point Pelee has appeared to be best at this time.
They are starting to catch some rainbows (steelhead if you prefer this fancy term) east of Wheatley harbor.

Fishing Report Lake Erie Leamington June 22
When I’m not out fishing I still monitor all the talk on the radio. Saturday was a very good walleye day. Sunday seemed a bit off for the better part of the day. Monday things were slow but really picked up steam late afternoon and evening. Hotspot is out off the end of Point Pelee near Grub’s Reef. Many are fishing for walleye just off the perch fishing hole. As I said in a previous post, if someone wants GPS Fishing Waypoints for the current activity, you can email me at email@example.com

Lake Erie – Walleye fishing was fair in 25 to 27 feet of water off Stoney Point, 20 feet of water off the Fermi Power Plant and 15 feet of water along the north end of the Banana Dike. The better fishing was in Ohio waters near West Sister Island where spoons, crank baits and crawlers were all producing fish depending on weather conditions. Perch anglers were starting to catch more fish near the mouth of the River Raisin and the Banana Dike when using minnows. Largemouth bass fishing was good between the River Raisin and Bolles Harbor.
Detroit River – Even though the Mayfly hatch is underway, walleye are still being caught. Copper and gold have been good colors. Perch can be found along the shipping channel and the weed beds. Good numbers of white perch have been caught in the lower Trenton Channel.
Lexington – Lake trout and salmon are hitting in waters 20 to 75 feet deep. Those fishing close to shore in the early morning caught salmon, lake trout and walleye. Pier anglers are catching rock bass, crappie, bass, pike, bullhead and a few walleye.
Harbor Beach – For chinook and coho, try 30 to 90 feet of water straight out or north of the harbor when trolling spoons off downriggers and offshore boards. Good colors were silver, green, blue, orange and yellow. Steelhead are hitting on bright colored spoons or body baits in 70 to 110 feet of water. Lake trout could be found in the lower half of waters 60 to 100 feet deep. Good colors were white with pink dots, green camo, orange or green. Walleye were caught in the evening when casting body baits off the north wall or trolling a crawler harness, small spoons or Hot-n-Tots. Perch anglers will want to try along the channel inside the harbor, near the lighthouse or the cemetery in 25 to 40 feet of water.
Saginaw Bay – Hot spots for walleye over the last week have been the Spark Plug, Callahan Reef, 10 feet of water off Kitchen Road and the mouth of the Kawkawlin River, the Slot from Quanicassee northeast to Sand Point and the Bar on the west side of the Slot. Pretty much wherever anglers went they caught walleye as long as they were in 10 feet of water or deeper, and most were getting their limits. The action near Sand Point and Wildfowl Bay slowed maybe because the fish moved out to deeper water. Channel cats were hitting in the Hot Ponds. Slow fishing at Caseville except for a few bass taken off the pier.
