Should I Hire A Guide At Clear Lake Next Week?

Recommended Posts

I'll be in northern California next week visiting my inlaws. They live about 20 minutes from clear lake. I'll probably break down and hire a guide. I've already contacted one. But the anticipation is killing me. I understand that fishing isnt catching. But I can't help but have some expectations.

It's always a good idea to hire a guide on a lake you've never been too if you can afford it.

Takes all the guessing and riding around out.

Good Luck and Welcome.

If I went on a legendary lake like that; I would definitely hire a guide. You'll get the most out of your experience.

I just did the Magic 8 Ball method on my daughter's toy and it said "Yes, Definitely"

clearlake water temps are threw the roof! Im talking close to 90 in a few spots. Most of the lake is in the middle of a massive algae bloom. The catfishing is outstanding with the average fish over 10 lbs. Call the tackle shops up here before you spend your money.

Find and hire a good guide and catch some fish. You won't regret it.

The WON Open at Clear Lake a few weeks ago had very high release mortality rates, 75 big bass died in the release boat, another 50+ found floating!

Just a reminder to practice good livewell management; keep the livewell water at 70-75 degrees and add a cup of 3% over the counter hydrogen peroxide to 15 gallons of livewell water.

day 1 at clear lake caught some top water fish and bed fish on drop shot. Today took sight fishing to a whole nother level. Loved it. Much thanks to Mr. ROSS ENGLAND for providing a very professional guided trip. My first time hiring a guide was money well spent. I would recommend him to anyone

I haven't fished that place in years.  My last two trips we caught 10 lb fish.  Each. 

 

The algae blooms there are insane.  It's like you're in a giant bowl of pea soup.
