Current Conditions

Clear Lake is currently sitting at about 4.5 feet Rumsey. In comparison to last year (1.0) we are in great shape. Compared to historical average of 5.8 it is low. Long range guesses dont show much hope right now but at least we have more than last year!

Water clarity is pretty good around the lake. Any where from a foot to 5 feet of visibility depending on the part of the lake. Water temperature is holding in the low 50s in the morning and working up to the mid 50s on sunny afternoons.

Still a larger than normal amount of floating debris around the lake so pay attention. One little deal that looks like a tule sticking up might have a 30 tree attached.

The Bite

Bass Fishing

Prior to the current return to late winter the water temp was getting up in to the low 60s by late afternoon and the fish were moving. With the water cooled off the bite is still good but requires a little more effort and not as many numbers are being landed.

I am having a dickens of a time trying to get on a consistent swim bait bite. By far ripping and plastics have been the most consistent way to go on the upper end of the lake.

Fortunately with more water in the lake the North and West shores of the upper end have been back in play in 2015. The South shore has been slow to come alive so far with the exception days around the creek mouths.

This winter was incredible! I got to fish a bunch between here and Berryessa and had a blast. You know it is a great winter when you are fishing in your shorts! By partner Jim with a DD caught just a week ago.

Spring 2015

Bass Fishing

So far this late Winter is looking real good! The bite has improved. The fish look superbly healthy. We have already put a DD in the boat as well as a number of other good fish. We have not broke out the live bait yet mostly because, we have not needed to for some great results. It is really looking like it is going to be an extremely productive Spring.

Reid and his buddy Chase popped in from Montana last week. He caught this nice one while we ran them around the lake to show them water to fish and methods. They reported back in a couple of days later with PB fish of 8.5 and 7.25. Not a lot of fish but they hung some good ones!

It looks like March is setting up to be a big fish month again with our current conditions. Those of you sitting on the fence might want to roll one way or the other, you could be missing the opportunity for a fish of a lifetime! Availability in April is fading fast, Thanks for that! We look forward to seeing you when we see you.

On Face Book

For those of you who are Face Bookers, hopefully you are seeing our posts about fishing trips. If you are interested in how the fishing was yesterday, if I was out, it will be posted that afternoon. Interested in something I am not covering? Let me know. I guess stop by and Like our page too, I dont know why, it is just what everyone asks?!

BTW, there is another Ross England (heaven forbid) who messes around on FB. The only page that I use is Clear Lake Guide Service, just an FYI.
