    From what I’ve heard for stripers on that lake is swimbaits. Particularly glidebaits. The Tactical Bassin guys love the S-Wavers in the 200 size for fishing stripers.

    Greetings GilChill,

    I've been to Clearlake a number of times and I'm not sure there are any striped bass. Mid-October to end of November could be really good for largemouth bass, which are getting ready for the winter. Lake still has a large abundance of bait, which can make fishing tough at times. Now, if there are stripers, I've haven't seen them in the past 5 years.

    Wish you the best, enjoy Clearlake!

    So unfortunately clear lake doesn’t have stripers. Or if it does it’s a small population. The tactical bassin guys fish for them all over the delta and in the Rivers up here. If you want any help I could ask my friends up there and try and get you some info.
