There is no doubt that the spawn has been the primary reason that anglers are having good success on Lake St. Clair lately. A lot of quality smallmouth are being caught by pulling up into shallow water and casting at dark spots.

Up and down the U.S. shoreline you will find variations on the range of spawning bass. We still have very cool water coming in from the St. Clair River. That affects water temperatures wherever that flow comes near shore on its’ way down to the Detroit River.

In another twist, there are some bass in the north part of the Lake that spawn later than the “main body” spawn at the Mile Roads.

In any case, you will hear stories about bass spawning from now until August as anglers come across random beds, most of which will be related to the cool currents of the St. Clair River.
