Fishing Lake County's Clear Lake and Blue Lakes
Clear Lake is California's largest natural freshwater lake. Lakes have existed at this site for at least 2.5 million years. The lake is surrounded by scenic mountains in the shadow of Mt. Konocti, an inactive volcano.
The waters of Clear Lake support large populations of largemouth bass, channel and white catfish, crappie, bluegill, carp and the native fish known as hitch. Sometimes called the bass capital of the West, the lake is known for it's quality bass with trophy fish over 10 lbs. Any cast at Clear Lake could result in the fish of a lifetime.
Clear Lake has such great fishing, ESPN hosts a fishing show here on a regular basis. (Click Here for the results).
You can also download the County's fishing guide.
The current lake record for largemouth bass stands at 17.52 pounds and is waiting to be broken. Could you be the one? There are also a few great local guides if you need a hand.
We've also had guests land some pretty terrific cat fish right from our dock. Fishing off the dock is a popular pass time for many guests and we've got a barbecue ready for those who land a cat fish.

Before You Put In...
If you're planning on bringing a boat to Clear Lake remember that we're working hard to keep it clear - particularly of invasive species like Quagga Mussels. There is a website dedicated to this which will explain what you'll need before you come and while you're enjoying this beautiful natural resource. Check out the boating information website today - then get your boat up here and enjoy some fishing, water skiing or just natural beauty.
