Re: Lake Erie Walleye from shore
Walleye are in the shallows in Erie right now for spawning. If you can find a shallow rock bar within wading distance of shore it would be ideal for the fly rod. I think a Clouser tied up in Chart/white, blue/white, green/white, would work nicely for them.
If you have the opportunity to fish them in a small river, wooly buggers will work fine for them. When the water is fairly clear; stick with the natural colors, black, olive, and brown. Flourescent colors for stained.
