Pleased to see the return of the dock at the boat launch. Nice angle that allows boats to be launched into deeper water.
Water 81 degrees. Bluegills closer to shore 8-12' depths. Early / late day better.

Tuesday June 16th.
Water temp down to 72 degrees. Fish now largely have moved away from shorelines. Look at depths of 8-14 feet. Fish jigs for crappies higher and bluegills near the bottom with live bait.
Was out Friday the 29th. Fish were indeed tight to shoreline. Bite was pretty good, but some sorting was necessary. Acfml, they were all crappie, at least where we were fishing.
When launching angle your trailer off to the right (towards where the pier used to be) at the bottom of the hill. The drop off is much steeper than backing straight in. if you throw a competent operator in the boat before dunking it, you can slide it right off and they'll be able to drive it up to the hill. Just be weary because the trailer will have to go off of the submerged pavement to take advantage of the steeper drop, and there are larger rocks off the side. Take it slow so you don't bust up your trailers.
Arctic Armor any crappie found near shore? Or mainly gills to speak of?
In just 5 days, from Friday the 22nd to Wednesday the 27th, the water temps shot up from 64 to 74 degrees. Too warm too fast. Fish still tight to shore. Bluegills spawn filled.
I was told no pier will be installed at clear lake for the foreseeable future. Water is Almost 3 feet to high for them to install it. With this rain storm I would pretty much count on no pier this season.
No the docks are not in. The launch is still underwater maybe worse than last year.
Doubt if there is a pier in as the launch is flooded.
