I'm comming up to fish Clearwater the end of September for the 19th year in a row. I know the lakes around Mineapolis needed some rain. Has the current weather helped.

Yes the last couple days has helped but the levels are at a all time low. shocked smiley I am not sure about clearwater but can almost bet it is still down there.

Good luck and drop a report for us!

Hey Topwater54,

Welcome to MFP! I think you will find the site fun and educational. Clearwater lake for the 19th year in a row! Wow... that is a pretty impressive streak. Do you have a place on the lake or is it a tradition you have established and keep it up each year? Either way, you must have amassed an impressive knowledge of the lake over that amount of time.

Good Fishing To Ya,

Jason "The Fisher" Pence

Here are some real-time water tables you can build...

Also the DNR Lake Finder shows current water levels. I typed in Clearwater and, of course, got a bunch of them. Not sure which county you are looking for. The Lake Finder is here...

As my name would tell you I live for topwater fishing. When I die I want them to put me through a meat grinder and feed me to the fish in Clearwater. I know that’s water pollution! The minute I leave there, I can't wait to return.
Thanks for your welcome, I feel honored.
I think it was 2000, the last time the water levels were this low, and the topwater bite was terrible. Two years ago it was bad, but a week before we came up you got four inches of rain and the lake rose a foot. If you fish Clearwater you know it's a different lake when the water is down by a foot or two.
In the past two years I have tried working on fishing with plastics and worms, and have had some success catching fish in Illinois. The pressure on the lakes down here is ridiculous. I am ready to take a different approach if I have too, but I love the way a fish attacks the lures sitting on the surface.

Thanks for the water level sites, but they are never up to date enough.

There is no more commercial resorts on Clearwater that I know of. There is a place on Lake Augusta which connects to Clearwater. I am currently renting a condo for the last 4 years from someone who bought from Maple Hill Resort when they closed.

Your site has interested me since I stumbled on to it a few years ago. I spent much time reading the other Minnesota Fishing site. I like yours better!

I encourage any of you to look at a site I have a blog on. There are people from all over the country who report on everything from shark fishing to bass. Sometimes it’s interesting to see how other parts of the country do things. The site is reelfisherman.com I have no stake in it, and am not trying to influence anyone away from this site. It’s not like a wife. You can have two.

Hopefully with the rain the state just got things will be a little better for your trip.

You might be able to still find a top water bite early in the morning, that seems like its always the best time for me when I bass fishing, which isn't all that often. Other then that it will probably pay to be flexible.

I also hotlinked that site for you but it just takes you to an error page. Maybe that site is having issues today.
