2015 Lake Erie Perch Fishing Forecast

Jeff Tyson, head of Lake Erie fisheries management for the Ohio Division of Wildlife stated –

“This year’s Western Basin perch hatch is the fourth best since we began keeping records in 1987.”  With two back-to-back good perch hatches, the perch fishing should keep getting better over the  next couple of years.”

There were lots of yellow perch being caught during the 2014 season, but most were on the small size. With another year of growth on them, the 2015 season should be a successful one for anglers in the Western Basin of Lake Erie.
