Clearwater water levels

5 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me the water level on Clearwater? I'm going to be there the end of September.

It's down about a foot or so from last year. My gauge is that I would not try to go in/out of the black hole area on plane. smile.gif

Thanks Sluggomaster! We hit it perfect last year. The lake was down like it is now and we got 4" of rain one week before we got there. It raised the lake a foot and the fishing was great!

I was out there last night. I didn't do so well for bass, but the pike were relentless. I did catch some bass on chartruese spinnerbaits, as well as several pike. Good luck! I don't plan on fishing that lake any more this year!

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
