Anyone have any good news for me about Fairport Harbor?

This is the best info I've found:

Central Basin
Walleye fishing has been excellent from Cranberry Creek to Beaver Creek in 30 to 40 feet of water and also occasionally as shallow as 16 feet, including Ruggles Reef. Trolling dipsys or jets with spoons or worm harnesses has been productive. Drifters are catching fish on bottom bouncers with worm harnesses. Walleye has been very good three to four miles off Eastlake, Fairport, Cleveland and Geneva in 47 to 55 feet of water. Anglers are trolling jet divers or dipsy divers with spoons ranging in watermelon, copper, monkey puke, purple/black, blue/silver color combos. Trolling worm harnesses (same colors) has also been successful.
Yellow perch fishing has been best off of the Lorain lighthouse, two to three miles north of Edgewater State Park (Cleveland) in 30 to 40 feet of water, two to three miles northwest of Fairport in 25 to 35 feet and one to one and one-half miles off Ashtabula and Conneaut in 20 to 45 feet of water. Shore anglers are catching yellow perch off the piers in Lorain, Fairport and Conneaut. Perch spreaders with shiners or worm harnesses fished near the bottom produce the most fish.


Smallmouth bass fishing has been excellent in harbor areas, and in 15 to 25 feet of water along the shoreline in Conneaut, Ashtabula, Geneva and Fairport Harbor. Fish were caught on tube jigs, crankbaits, and jigs tipped with minnows, night crawlers, or leeches.
Surface temperatures range from 67 degrees off of Toledo to 62 degrees off of Cleveland.
