Clear Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 5/7/10. Just spent five days on the lake. Cold front after cold front has been hitting the area and the wind is causing 2 to 6 foot rollers. No joke! Everyone was having a tough if not impossible time. The hens are way offshore and the bucks are suspending in ten to twenty foot water just waiting. Had luck with some sight fishing and drop shotting submerged trees at Lake Berryessa for smallies and hybrids. But with night temps in the 30's and the intense wind here, wait till it calms down. Spring has been long, cold and rainy.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
75 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.

Clear Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

Clear Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The full moon is right around the corner. The gravitational pull is starting to increase with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
