Lakes & Reservoirs

Clear Lake Sponsored by
Date 22-Oct-16
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Clear Lake: Water temperature is around 57 degrees. The fish cleaning station at McIntosh is closed for the season. The bathrooms at Lynne Lorenson and the Ventura jetties are also closed. Boat ramps at McIntosh and Lynne Lorenson are still in as of 10/20, but will be coming out soon. Anglers without a boat can still find some good wading opportunities in early October for yellow bass and walleyes. Try the MacIntosh swim beach, off the North Shore on the edge of the rushes or off Farmer's Beach. Yellow Bass - Excellent: Action has been good to excellent at Hy-Vee reef, State Reef, the sandy shoreline near the Ventian Village mouth, McIntosh swim beach, the hump on the little lake out from McInstosh swim beach and the inlet from the Ventura Marsh. Tip a small jig with a minnow or a piece of cut bait and bump it along the bottom. Walleye - Fair: Some walleyes are being caught near the Ventura grade. Use jigs and a minnow or cut bait in many of the same areas that yellow bass are biting. Boat anglers may find walleyes near the Hy-Vee reef, the edge of the North Shore Reed bed, the island or Dodges point. Black Crappie - Fair: Anglers have caught some in the Baptist camp area out near 10 contour. Muskellunge - Good: Musky fishing has been decent; October is usually a good month for musky fishing. Yellow Perch - Good: Yellow perch are hitting by the grade on 1/16 ounce black leadheads with a piece of cut bait.
