I have not been there in a few years but I caught fish by just trolling a night crawler on a long leader of four pound test.

:doh: No clue here.

:think: Though perhaps you should take a digital camera with and teach us how to fish it! ;)

huh. Where'd you find the fish?!!! I just went up last week and got nothing for 5 hours until we headed to where the creek flows in and caught a bunch of 8-10 inchers. Place was worth the drive though. Just beautiful.

That's where I've caught most of my fish from clear lake too. You're talking about the cove by the other campground, the one without the resort, right? Ive always done really well from there, past the campground, then all the way up the lava shoreline over the flooded forest to the point across from the lodge. I've never caught anything over 12 inches from clear lake, but man, I've had days where I left because the fishing was TOO good!

Has anyone pulled any brookies out of clear lake? I know they're there, but really hard to catch, especially with all the stockers taking all the bait.

I've heard that they are in there but never caught one my self...I have caught them in Carmen and Smith...not real fatties by any means but never the less Brookies...
Had my best luck throwing spoons in the flat areas in the early am or early evening....Tight lines..

Just at the lake or is that the brookie's preferances, cause I caught tons of em at a different lake, they eat anything that smells good or looks good. They just keep jumpin and jumpin where I was. They were up in 2' most of the time, hiding under rocks and logs, then jumpin and jumpin.

this lake is pretty much a drop off no shallow places really, and the places that it is shallow there isn't much cover... ;)
