Crappie are being caught on jigs about a foot off the bottom in 16-25 feet around brush and channels. Many anglers are catching limits of nice fish, hardly any small ones being caught during the past few days.

Clinton Lake Fishing Tips

In Clinton Lake, there are numbers, size, and variety that will keep all fishermen happy. For crappie, use a VERY small jig head, like 1/16- 1/32 oz. Then put a minnow on the end and jig near brush piles and downed trees. For walleye try around the dam and along the breaks along the peninsula that forms in the middle of the lake. Try using crankbaits or a jig with live bait and troll. For large and small mouth, go into old river channels near the dam and find rocky areas. Try crankbaits or jigs.
