Clear Lake Fishing Reports and Best Areas Fishing Map

 This year, the high lake level (highest it’s been this late in the year in a long time) the bite  slowed down a lot for most anglers. When temperatures in the morning are in the high 40’s and the day time highs are usually in the high 60’s use Brown/brown jigs, 2.0 Squarebills, and a shakeyhead for the bass, and the crappie feel for micro-swimbaits, all should be fished in 10-20 feet of water.
When windy and rainy, some diehard anglers using Lucky Craft LV lipless crankbait or throwing swimbaits and A rigs.
The angler’s with the most success put in their time and worked three different sizes of swimbaits. Most is with live bait and fish shallow around the North end docks.

About Clear Lake

NOW- MORE ON THIS GREAT FISHERIE!!!
WE’LL try and tell you just about everything you’ll need to fish rhe best areas of Clear Lake because it sometimes takes a JUST few live minnows, clams, or the silver-side smelt. Because catfish are one of the most popular species at Clear Lake, more hooks are tipped with bait here than just about anything else.
.
Many Clear Lake regulars net the silversides early in the mornings during the late summer and early fall months, and freeze them for use as – bait throughout the year. – One angler suggested freezing them in a milk carton or other container filled with lake water, so that they aren’t as fragile when thawed
The next best -bait for cats, bass is probably minnows. Which most suppliers sell here at the lake.
Hooking them just behind the dorsal fin and floating them 4 to 5 feet below a bobber this time of year. For catfish most folks use about a 2 1/2-inch bobber.
For crappie, live minnows and  Mini-Jigs are both effective, and you never know what color will work on the jigs until you get out and try them.
Local favorites are red-white, yellow and white. Lighter colors work  best- because they come closest to imitating the bright surface of the silver side.
Whisker fish: clams are another excellent bait for extra holding power. With the spawn underway through June, you shouldn’t put the bait too far below the bobber. Frozen anchovy  also lure a lot of catfish, and the old-but-good night crawler deserves mention too.
Night crawlers are an old favor bass fishermen too, Right now’s one of the best surface lures is Devil’s Horse, an injured type lure with a spinner, sure to be the favorites.
When bass are deeper, lot of crank baits and plastic worms get good use.
You can also do well on spinner baits like Jitterbugs  Poppers. They do real well in with the crawfish-colored  Bombers
One more tip for the bass: the real heavy fish are caught on plastic worms.
