You are talking Canada right???

Try posting it in the Canada Forum. I know Clay is part of the Wabigoon River Watershed, so you can expect cloudy water from the..CLAY lol. There should be some nice pike and walleyes, and some large Musky if you can find them. Cant help ya out anymore cause I dont hear any reports about Clay and have never been there myself..

Just returned from Clay late last night. Spent a week there. First time on the lake.We had great fishing. Lots of 20 plus walleye. Largest 26.5 Met a few others there from Esko. They came when we were leaving. Accomodations very good. Nice dockage, power, landings and protection. Lots of eagles to watch, loads of grouse around and many deer, No wolves though and no moose spotted.. Weather was in the hi 70's to low 80's. Had to hunt for deep water reefs, but once you found the ciscoes, the bite was great. All in all it is a very healthy lake. Gosh I wish we had the forage bases in our local lakes that they have up there. It was a great trip. i recommend it to anyone who loves to fish walleye.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
