Matt Lamb’s Catfish Guide Service


I have been an angler and tournament fisherman my entire life, and look forward to sharing the experience with novice and experienced fisherman alike.  Catfishing is often overlooked yet remains one of the most targeted species in fresh water.  The best part about catfishing is that it is fun for the entire family and is often fast action.  Clinton lake is hard to beat for channel cat action and with the recent introduction of blue catfish, it will remain a top catfish destination in Illinois for years to come.  In addition to Clinton, I also offer trips to Powerton lake.  On Powerton we would be targeting trophy blue catfish and all fish will be released.

What to Expect From Your Trip!

A day of catfishing on Clinton lake can be a day you remember for a lifetime.  While many fisherman are amazed by a 2 pound crappie or a 5 pound bass, catfish of 7 to 15 pounds are frequently caught on most outings. Like all things in the outdoors some times are better than others and when booking a trip you will get an honest report of the current fishing conditions.  I want everyone to have a great time and catch fish so I will guarantee you catch fish or there will be no charge.  Powerton would be a bit slower paced, but you have the opportunity to catch a once in a lifetime fish.
