Mason City Fishing

Clear Lake
Surface temp is around 55 degrees. Channel catfish   fair: Catfish can be caught on the warmer days with cutbait or minnows. Look for the windy side of the lake. May need to start fishing closer to dark or after dark for shoreline action. White bass   slow: An occasional white bass is being caught near the island. Crappie   fair: Anglers have had some success fishing the canals. Walleye  good: Some walleyes still being caught on rocky shorelines. Anglers are mostly using a 1/16-ounce lead head jig and minnow or twister tails. Walleyes are also being caught on docks along the north shore to the City Beach. The bite has been picking up during the day with the best bite still being at twilight periods. Yellow bass   fair: Some yellows have been caught on the little lake with small artificials. Fish in the shallows on warm days with a slight breeze or try deeper near the boat ramps. Anglers fishing the island have not had much luck yet. Anglers have started to catch some off docks.
