FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE
This reservoir has limited cover and structure. The bottom is primarily sandy clay with some areas of gravel. The upper reservoir has some larger areas of aquatic vegetation.
ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
McClellan Reservoir has been severely affected by drought and has gone dry three times since 2000. The reservoir has refilled to approximately 1/2 capacity and has been restocked to begin rebuilding the population.
TIPS & TACTICS
Saugeye are the only species in the lake that resembles walleye. These hybrid fish can be identified by the brown mottled coloration on their sides and large teeth. Fish the bottom of the reservoir with cut bait or live minnows much like you would fish for catfish.
