Lake St Clair Bass Opener Days 2016

The dates were set up with the intention of holding off the harvest of bass until the spawn was over. In a perfect world, the dates are very solid for marking the end of the spawn period in most of the State. In reality, the weather and most significantly, the temperature during the spring will either advance or slow down the timing of the spawn. It’s data that is worth keeping a close eye on.

Note: The waters that are contained around Lake St. Clair Metropark (from the mouth of the Black Creek back into the park) are considered inland waters.
