New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has information on its website regarding fishing on Lake Erie. Fish Lake Erie is another website that provides fishing reports for Lake Erie, including the area of the lake that borders Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has reports on a number of different bodies of water in Pennsylvania, including Lake Erie. Lake Link also provides fishing reports where people who have fished the portion of the lake that borders Ohio can update the site with comments and information regarding their fishing experiences.
By surface area, Lake Erie is the 11th largest lake in the world, and it is the shallowest of the five Great Lakes. It is fed by the Detroit River at the west, and drains out into Lake Ontario through the Niagara River. The Lake borders Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio.
Perch fishing offshore during the spring can be productive and is one of the most popular species for spring fishing. Smallmouth bass and rock bass are also good offshore fishing, but walleye fishing offshore is generally slow in the spring months. Summer is the most popular time to fish off Lake Erie, and most walleye fishing is done offshore during the summer months.
