  1. Fished Clark yesterday with no success. 3 of us casted roadrunners along the dam for a couple of hours. Had heard of large numbers of white bass being caught but probably a rumor.

  4. Crappie have started to run at Clark as of 3-27. Water temp is still quite low, hovering in the high 40's @ 6 feet depth but creeping into the mid 50's low 60's in the shallows. Best bait by far are live minnows about 2.5ft below a bobber. If you remember where the brush/cover piles were at when the lake was super low you will find Crappie. PLEASE throw back anything under 6 inches!

  7. Fished clark on the weekend. White bass were being caught over by the spillway from boats, at a pretty good pace. We caught several under length limit black bass from shore off the rock points. Water temp was 55°f. The brush piles I said had been put out have not been put out yet.
