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!

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
