Fishing Report for Clinton Lake

FISHING REPORT PROVIDED BY:  Reported by Old Joes Bait & Tackle on Rt. 54 in DeWitt. Stop by soon for fresh bait and tackle box supplies. "The wonders of the best fishing holes are too beautiful to miss and should be enjoyed often."

WATER CONDITIONS:  Lake levels are good for fishing. The water temperature is up to 98 degrees in the hot water area and from 84 to 86 degrees in the cooler end. It's been hot and dry which has slowed fishing activities. The fish are still biting, but need more fishermen!
