Depends where your at. Some bays I have fished were fairly clear by shabby standards. Last weekend just outside of nmz was like 4 " of clarity. Road bed varied depending on depth/how close to creek channel. Trees were better bt only good clarity I found was in bays. Panfish and catfish bite was great!

Is the water still stained on Shabbona or has it cleared up?

Just a quick added report to what we did/saw yesterday....started near the area out from the campground shoreline....everything we saw was near bottom....water had a lot of color to it...I walked toward earthen pier 2 and guy's were working cribs there...dropped the camera and water was worse near bottom as far as clarity...caught a few...they wanted the long wedgie instead of the creature baits...headed to e.p. 4 and checked out some cribs there...pretty much the same thing....bite was better deeper....decided to hit some trees and headed out there....noticed the mudline...extended north and south...not sure how fast it moves based on flow/melt off of snow...bite was definitely better there...but so was the clarity..had 2 close to 12 with several 10-11...had 31 on the clicker when I pulled the plug...all c&r..hope this helps you guy's...

Ice was 12 inches every where I walked....I'll put up a full report after tonights game...last minute invite to the Blackhawks game...activity level was more than the conditions I read on the weather channel....checked the creek on the way in and it had a moderate flow ...cleaner than the storms normally make it...special thanks to the 2 guy's giving me a heads up on where to enter onto the ice....as I was checking the safeness of travel they hollered and pointed a way out onto the ice...more later gotta run...

Wouldn't it be great if there was a place to post fishing reports and another place for conversations???
