Clear Lake Iowa Fishing Reports

June 16, 2017 Fishing Report

FATHER’S DAY WEEKEND, TAKE A DAD FISHING, HE DESERVES IT!!!

HOT HOT HOT!!!!

The word that best describes the fishing and weather. Even with the above average highs lately and water temps in the 74 to 76 range. Fishing has been very good for a variety of species. The lakes many weed beds have finally started to thicken up creating fish holding structure for walleyes, crappies, largemouth bass, perch, and of course muskies!!!

The Walleye fishing has been exceptional throughout the entire lake. Anglers are finding success pulling spinner/crawler harnesses in the Hyvee Reef area and the deeper basin between Dodges Point and the island.

The opposite end of the spectrum people have been experiencing great fishing off many of the public docks around the lake. Fishing with slip bobbers and leeches or minnows being the way to go for these shallower eyes 3’ to 5’ is the best depth.

We have seen the Muskie action really pick up in the last 2 weeks. Anglers are seeing multiple fish per trip and the fish being caught have been in the mid to upper 40” size. Anglers are moving most of these fish on bucktails and topwater lures like the ( LAKE X LURES) we have just added these to the store stop in and checkout  the selection.

Anglers looking to target Yellow Bass and crappies your focus should be on the deeper mud 10-12 ft. Dragging 16th and 8th oz jigs tipped with crawlers/minnows best colors pink, white and black!! Moving around till you find active pods of fish is key here. South of harbourage and around hyvee reef are good starting points.
