Lake Erie Recreation



Ashtabula County’s northern border is 26 miles of gorgeous Lake Erie coastline.  It is the shallowest, warmest and most biologically productive of the five great lakes, containing more consumable fish than all of the other four combined.  The Lake Erie walleye fishery is widely considered the best in the world.

 

Because it is so shallow, Erie is the only Great Lake that is entirely above sea level.  The outlet is the Niagara River; consequently, it is Lake Erie that feeds water to Niagara Falls.

This freshwater lake is responsible for the long growing season, the abundant recreational activities and the lake effect snow experienced in Ashtabula County. The setting sun over the water rivals vibrant colors and patterns seen anywhere in the world. 

Walleye, perch and steelhead fishing is ideal off the Ashtabula County shore, referred to as the Central basin.  Depths and temperatures combine for the perfect conditions. Even a first-time fisherman can reel in a great catch! Charter boat companies operating out of marinas in Geneva, Ashtabula, and Conneaut offer first-class experiences on the water – they won’t even make you touch the worms! If fishing isn’t your idea of fun on the water, ask a charter about their sunset cruises. 

Two lighthouses remain in Ashtabula and Conneaut harbors.  While not open to the public, they make the perfect backdrop to any shoreline activity. Consider a sunset kayak paddle to get an up-close look of the lighthouse for the perfect way to end a day!
