I'm coming up from KC over Labor day and staying the week. Staying on Clitherall. Any updates on bass fishing in the area? Want to catch bass, bass, bass and a northern would be OK too. Fishing is tough here in Missouri, water temp 86 degrees..it cools off to about 85 at night. Any info would be appreciated. Planning on fishing several lakes during the week. Thanks.

Don't expect much difference in surface temps vs. your area...most lakes are in the 80 range. The bass fishing, on the other hand, is always great as long as you are targeting the deepest weeds in the lake. In clear lakes like Clitherall, you should be searching in the 16-20' range. Jig worms are impossible to beat in the heat of summer. If you get some good wind, the fish will rise to take a deep running crankbait also. Long casts made parallel to about 30 degrees to the weed edge is the ticket with that approach. Unless you plan on fishing prior to sun up, leave your spinnerbaits at home. Good luck!

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
