While most people think of Clear Lake as being the major lake in Lake County, there are many others as well including Blue Lakes. While Clear Lake is large and shallow, Blue Lakes is very deep and remains refreshingly cool throughout the summer. In addition, there is a large fleet of electric boats for rent on Blue Lakes and this adventure starts there.
Blue Lakes is spring-fed, leaving it unaffected by larger climatological factors that many are experiencing across western North America. That means the waters are clean, ideal for swimming and fishing year-round. Although Blue Lakes is comprised of two separate lakes (Upper and Lower), locals refer to both lakes as simply “Blue Lakes”—perhaps to honor its one-of-a-kind, limnological nature.
Lake County’s Clear Lake has been known for its bass fishing for years, recognized as one of the top bass fishing lakes in the U.S. Truly the lake is a fishing paradise with more fish per square acre of water than any other lake in North America. Recently one angler caught a lot more than he bargained for as Sean Moffett landed a catfish in nearby Rodman Slough that set the world’s record.
