COLUMBUS, OH – Excellent walleye fishing is expected at Lake Erie now through October, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. Walleye catches are typically best during June, followed closely by July and August.

The 2019 season is anticipated to produce walleye fishing results that could surpass last year’s record level of success.

On average, anglers caught and kept a walleye for every 75 minutes of fishing.
