Default Clear Lake

The Fishing at Clearlake still remains fair with very little changes from the typical summer patterns currently working. We are starting to see big schools of juvenile bass (three to four inches in length) congregating in the backs of marinas & protected coves. As the summer goes on & the lake level continues to drop, these juvenile bass will begin to make there way out into deeper, more oxygen rich water, which in turn should improve the topwater & swimbait bite. The North end of the lake is still heavily weeded over so keep on the move untill you locate the fish. If you should get a blow up or catch a fish, chances are ther are more fish in that area, so fish it thoroughly. Your best bet for being successful in the north end is to get on the early morning topwater bite which happens pretty fast like 5:30am to 8am and use buzzbaits & Super Spooks. Mid lake & the south arms have been kicking out some decent numbers of fish on deep rockpiles and docks adjacent to deep water with crawdad pattern jigs & crankbaits. There has been some fisherman doing well fishing at nite at places like Shag rock & Henderson point using dark colored jigs & drop shotting worms. The Catfish action is definantly hot right now with fish ranging from five to fifteen pounds being caught on cut baits & nightcrawlers in both shallow & deep water all around the lake. One thing is for certain, there has been very little fishing pressure out there. The lake has been like a ghost town mid week with very few boats on the weekend. Troy Bellah (Clearlake Outdoors)
