Species: Crappie
Fishing Rating: 1
Water Temperature:
Crappie shown is a black crappie. Though highly desirable, it's much more likely the crappie population in Clinton is predominantly WHITE crappie. Any crappie fishermen on Clinton able to offer their actual experience? And, with the crappie fishing slowed by water temps, any observations re channel cats?

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
67 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.

Clinton Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- They actually move up and stage at this point in anticipation for spawn. Try channels and brush in
10-15 ft of water. We have been catching good numbers at Clinton
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.

Clinton Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.
