Clearwater is a super deep lake and warms up slow. Both times I was there on opener nothing was moving yet, not even trout. But by June, it might be perfect. Mountain just north of Clearwater is a great trout lake too, and I did well there on opener. By June they'll probably be off the shore and deeper on Mountain. Every year is different, so I hope you hit it right!

Just a reminder, stairwell portage will be reconstructed this summer. Stating as soon as ice goes out, and expected to be done some time in July.

I’m going to the stairwell portage the first week of June was wondering if it’s worth fishing lake trout for the day on Duncan.Was also thinking about a day on clearwater anybody have any thoughts on that. Mrs. Mycelia has never caught a lake trout thought this might be the time.

I’ve caught LT on Clearwater that time of year for sure. Could be anywhere from shallow to 40-50 feet down, just depends on water temps. Crocodile spoon was our most productive bait last June.
