Clear Lake near Mount Hood Village, Oregon
Clear Lake is actually a irrigation storage reservoir thus water levels get lower as the season progresses. The reservoir's boat launch because of this may be unusable later in the season. Additionally note that the lake can be pretty busy. To catch Rainbow and Brook trout in this reservoir post spawn follow the fishes movement from shallow spawning beds to deeper water. Use lures such as wet flies, light jigs (skirted or baited) small streamers and small spoons. As summer comes along follow the movement of the fish as conditions change (water temp, light intensity, bait movement, etc). Use lures such as streamers, wet or dry flies, mid weight or floating jigs (skirted or baited), spin jigs, plugs and puppet minnows (a common ice fishing lure). Into fall continue to follow fish movement as days shorten, temps drop and lakes turn over. Use lures similar as to summer but larger and drop small surface presentations, also consider inline spoons. Enjoy fishing.
