I was pleasantly surprised by the water clarity on Clair today. I'm not going to boldly call it great or clear, but I did not find many areas that I would consider unfishable. I did not venture South of Metro Beach though. Even the Clinton looked good. Slightly stained away from the outflow. A good sign was most of it was pushing directly South. Anchor Bay was the worst, but still very fishable. It has slight greenish stain to it which is a good sign. Almost looked more like the effects of an algea bloom then muddy drainage. The water clarity at the top of the water column was noticable better then the lower. Which is a sign the system is settling. The slight North winds and relatively stable weather should only improve the conditions. The "lake current" was also more noticable then usual, which will also help. If you don't know what I mean by the "lake current", throw a bouy marker out and watch the water flow around it and which direction the bouy shifts. We should be good to go this weekend. No excuses boys!

The future I can not control. Wish I could!

Anyway, each rainfall we have should start to have less and less effect as the entire system starts to settle in. Early rainfalls always produce more silt than rainfalls later in the year. Except with the Thames/South Shore with is always a mess after even the slightest sprinkle. With any luck the good blast we had a few weeks ago may have done what usually takes months and we could be looking a good year for water clarity when it is all said and done. Just a thought. Increasing weed growth will also help.

You fishing the opener Mac Daddy?
