24 March 2013 - 10:43 AMStill fishing. Basic setup for me is 1/4-3/4oz egg sinker depending on current, plastic bead, barrel swivel, 1-2' leader, size 6 or 8 baitholder hook, half a crawler. Yesterday some bites were very hard to see.
24 March 2013 - 09:45 AMWoohoo I got a shout out. When we had those 3-4 days of warm weather the sucker fishing was way better. Since the temps have gotten colder they seemed to have slowed down. I fished yesterday from 4-8 and probably caught around a dozen and missed a handful. They seemed like they were holding in one hole on the river. Hopefully we get some more rain and 50 degree temps.

Does it take a little bit longer for the clinton river to warm up than other rivers
my buddy went out to yhe belle river yesterday and was catching suckers and i checked out the clinton and nobody i talked to had caught any and i didnt catch any when i was down at the spillway dam friday
it makes sense to me that i would because its fed by lake orion and some other cold water sources but with all the runoffs that drain to it wouldnt it not cause that much of an issue for the river warming up?
Kinda hard for the river to warm up when temps have been around freezing. There are some suckers in the Clinton river right now. When we had that weekend of warmer temps the suckers were more active. During three days I probably caught over 100. I was out yesterday and probably caught around a dozen. A lot of them were biting very light.
16 March 2013 - 07:29 PMIs river woods park the one close to auburn rd? If so you are right about it not being very deep. It does however hold fish. Mostly brown trout and creek chubs. what usually works for me is small panther martins and small crank baits like the strike king bitty pond minnow.
