Clear Lake: Black Crappie Good Crappies have been caught in the canals. Fish with small ice jigs under a bobber or add a split shot or two and vertical jig near structure. Also check out the edges or inside the rushes around the lake as crappies will likely be found near them as well.
Bluegill Fair A few bluegills have been caught in the canals. Fish with small ice jigs under a bobber or add a split shot or two and vertical jig near structure.
Channel Catfish Good Catfish action has been good this past week. Fish near inlets and windblown shorelines in the early season using cutbait, worms, or minnows. The water is still very clear in the shallows, so fish a little deeper, on calm days.
Muskellunge Fair Anglers looking to catch an early season musky should target shallow flats along the shoreline on the east end of the lake. Jig and a minnow or a slow moving artificial. Walleye anglers have caught a few near the outlet on the east end and also by the Marsh inlet by the Ventura grade.
Walleye Good Shore fisherman near the Ventura grade have caught some walleyes during the day and at dark on minnows and twisters.
Yellow Bass Fair Yellow bass have been caught in low numbers off the Grade. Farmers beach and babtist camp shorelines can be good spots in the early season.
