Clear Lake is located three miles east of Dora Lake, about a mile north of Wirt. The lake is 132 acres and is 30 ft deep. The fish community primarily consists of northern pike and panfish. A modest population of walleye exists through stocking. A US Forest Service campground is located across the road on Noma Lake.
Northern pike were sampled at a rate lower than lakes similar to Clear Lake, however size structure is considered moderate indicated by an average length of almost 25 inches in sampled pike. Growth exceeded the statewide average for young ages and was similar to the statewide average by age five.
Bluegill were abundant in both trap nets and gill nets. The trap net catch rate was within the lake class expected range. The average length for gill net sampled bluegill was 6.3 inches and 5.5 inches for trap net sampled fish indicating poor size structure. No bluegill were sampled over 7.2 inches.
Gill nets sampled black crappie within the expected range while the trap net catch rate was below the expected range. Size structure was poor with no fish exceeding nine inches in the sample. The average length for gill net sampled fish was 7.5 inches.
Yellow perch were sampled in gill nets at a rate within the expected range for similar lakes, and was above the historical low sampled in the previous assessment. Lengths ranged from five to eleven inches, however, the average length was about six inches.
Other species sampled include brown bullhead, largemouth bass, pumpkinseed sunfish, white sucker, and one walleye.
