    Default Clinton info?


    Any reports on Clinton? I'm going tomorrow for the first time in about 20 years.

    I did. 2 of us fished 7 hours. We ended up with 1 6" crappie and 1 8" crappie. They showed up on the sonar in large schools out on the flats. They were just too lazy today. Other boats had the same results. The weather was a favored suspect. High of 52 with sustained winds of 15 -25 mph. Real tough day. The warm arm was 62 while the cool side was 52.

    Clinton is normally a good lake. I have had 100 fish days in the past. The crappie at Clinton usually favor some pink in their meal.

    I struggle for some reason in April. This year, Feb. and March were fair to good but April has been not so good, they must be somewhere in between the deep and the shallows that I cannot find. May was always a good month for me at Clinton but I haven't been there much the last few years. Good Luck.
    Ditto for Sanchris.

    It's the warm water discharge from the nuclear power plant.
