Lorain is a city in Lorain County, Ohio. Lorain is located in northeastern Ohio on Lake Erie, at the mouth of the Black River, about 30 miles west of Cleveland. Walleye are the most-pursued game fish, and can be found nearshore beginning in the spring and continuing through the entire season. Deeper offshore waters offer anglers plenty of walleye action from summer through fall by both deep trolling and drifting/cast methods. The famous sandbar rises up from the depths between Lorain and Vermilion, creating a natural habitat for summer and fall walleye. During the fall, this area is well-known for producing trophy-size walleye. Public launch ramps and marinas provide excellent access for anglers wishing to trailer or dock their boat. Charter fishing boats are also available, offering angling adventures for walleye, steelhead, smallmouth bass and yellow perch. Smallmouth bass are plentiful along the entire length of Lorain County's rocky shoreline and artificial reef structures, providing fast action from spring through fall. Numerous bass fishing tournaments originate from Lorain Harbor due to both the abundance and size of Lorain County smallmouth. Don't overlook Lorain's artificial reefs, which are a natural haven for the smallmouth. In addition, walleye and yellow perch are also frequent visitors to these mounds of rock and concrete rubble.
