Clearwater Lake is 880 acres and is located about four miles south of Deerwood in Crow Wing County. Maximum depth is 54 feet and 29 % of the lake is 15 feet deep or less. There are good numbers of largemouth bass and smallmouth bass in Clearwater Lake. Most of the lakes in the Brainerd area do not offer smallmouth bass fishing, so the smallmouth fishery is definitely unique to this area. There are catchable numbers of walleye and northern pike in this lake with some big pike in here too. Other fish include bluegill, crappie, rock bass and perch.
