FISHING CALIFORNIA

First Lake


April 17, 2024

The first lake fishing area in California was likely Clear Lake, which has been a popular fishing destination since the 1800s. The lake is known for its abundant bass population, including largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass. Other fish species include crappie, bluegill, and catfish. Nearby activities include hiking, boating, and wine tasting in nearby vineyards. Fishing tips include using weedless lures and fishing near the lake's many structure areas. The best time to visit for bass fishing is typically in the spring and fall, with average temperatures ranging from the mid-50s to low 80s Fahrenheit.
