Clear Lake

Rating - Good   

Friday, Jan 18 2019
Ice thickness is 8 to 10 inches in the little lake. Use extreme caution if you venture out on the main lake as areas that were open water are starting to freeze over and are now covered with snow. Yellow Bass - Fair: Start shallow using a small jig or jigging spoon tipped with several spikes or a waxworm. You have to keep moving to stay on fish. Yellow Perch - Good: Lots of small fish are being caught. If youre not going to use the fish you catch, please release them. Black Crappie - Fair: Try a jigging spoon tipped with a minnow head in the early morning. Walleye  Fair: A few walleyes are being caught fishing the rock reefs. Best bite is early morning and evening.
