clearwater lake

Recommended Posts

anybody familuar with this lake south of deerwood?
I tryed it satuarday and there were many boats out fishing, I tryed for bass and only had two fish on, but one was a very large fish.
was woundering how the walleyes are, and what this lake is fished for most. seems this lake does not have much for weeds, so maybe I was not fishing the right areas.

Clearwater holds a good number of fish, and it has Smallies too!!!

The Crappies run decent size, the Pike can run in the teens for pounds, and the Walleye population is strong.

The clear water makes for tough daytime fishing, coupled with the lake bordering on turnover, and all the pressure received out there from anglers.

I'd wait til after turnover (water temp about 55 degrees) and try again.

Did you try around any of the bullrush areas or old lily pads?

Good fishing,

I did not try the lillys or rush, you are probally right, the lake was at a stage were things are changing, and turnover will be better. with this cold weather this weekend, turnover will be going.

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
