Clinton Lake smallies?


Recommended Posts

Just read an article in today's Pantagraph by Scott Richardson, the guy who indirectly got me into flyfishing and thus the ISA. He was writing mainly about crappies at Clinton Lake, but mentioned in the article that the state had stocked smallies there, too. http://www.pantagraph.com/articles/2009/04...06474597277.txt

Anyone have any experience or know anything about smallmouth at Clinton Lake?

There are smallies in Clinton Lake, but they are scattered. And, they are outnumbered by the largemouth. They have been stocking them around the Muscutin Bay area. If you go to the ramp there, you can be sure to catch a few. However, all of the ones I have caught have been 6-10". A friend of mine said his dad caught a 22"er there a few years ago. Other guys have mentioned that there have been smallies caught, and weighed in at tournaments.


So, while they are there, you really are going to have a tough time catching them with any consistency.
