Lewis and Clark Lake Fishing

category : Fishing
Lewis and Clark Lake Fishing There is some fine fishing available at Lewis and Clark for a variety of species - walleye, sauger, largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill, crappie, and catfish. Look for all these species around the jetties at the Weigand-Burbach area. A number of these jetties were installed to improve habitat and well as fishing opportunities.

In February-March, there can be some good sport on largemouth and smallmouth bass at the upper end of the lake. At the same time, the chutes and backwaters around Niobrara produce good fishing for walleye, sauger, northern pike and smallmouth bass. There is good walleye fishing in May and June off the flats at Weigand Creek and for channel catfish along the bluff shoreline along the old river channel casting and trolling crank bait.

Later in summer action increases for catfish, sauger and walleye at the west end, where the river runs into the lake. In late summer, anglers can look for schools of shad to lead them to some good white bass fishing.
