Clear Lake (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-08-27 20:21:51

Not much fishing traffic but there is a lot of bait in the water making it tough to interest the bass. Cooler nights are needed to change the pattern. Frogs are worth trying, a are buzz baits. There’s a decent jig bite in the southern part of the lake. Southern part is producing better than the north. Catfish bite is hot on cut baits. Clear Lake Outdoors (707) 262-5852
