 reed adjustments

OK,I've been back at playing on a regular basis for about a year now, and I'm getting close to where I was when I stopped twenty-some years ago. My particular frustration is articulating the upper (Clarion) B & C...Altissimo is no problem, and up to the Bb in the clarion is ok, but all I get is "fuzz" or squeaks on the B & C. Have tried different mouthpieces, instruments, & reeds, and nothing fixes it...However, with some reeds it's a lot closer. SO my question is, is there a particular place on the reed that I can adjust to make these notes speak more easily? I have butchered many reeds trying to fix this.
