Oct 2015 Walleye hatch suggests above average walleye fishing for Lake Erie for the next 3 to 5 years.
Walleye fishing in Lake Erie is expected to be especially good for the next three to five years, officials at the Ohio Department of National Resources said Wednesday.

Yellow perch fishing also appears to be on the upswing.

The ODNR officials said the 2015 walleye fish hatch was one of the biggest in recent history, according to biologists who monitor the lake.

“With these hatch index results, we are expecting the walleye fishing in Lake Erie in the next three to five years to be exceptional,” said James Zehringer, director of the ODNR. “This is outstanding news for Ohio anglers and out-of-state anglers who enjoy fishing on Lake Erie, the Walleye Capital of the World.”

Officials came up with their walleye picture by using survey data from ODNR trawling of the lake’s western basin, along with data from the state agency’s Canadian counterpart, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.

The average catch of 84 spring hatch walleye per hectare (about 2.5 acres) is well above the long term average of 32 per hectare, the ODNR said.
