Storm Lake (including Little Storm Lake)

The dredge machine on Storm Lake is in operation.  Stay clear of the dredge, booster pump, and pipeline stretching from the dredge to the east shore. Recent sampling has indicated a fair amount of walleye (less than 17 inches) are in the state marina complex.


Little Sioux River (Linn Grove to Correctionville)

Anglers are catching lots of walleye in the Little Sioux River from Cherokee to the Correctionville/Anthon area.  Large white twisters are working great.  Live chubs have been producing good walleye as well.  Focus on deeper pools, such as below rock riffles, near bridges, and around snags. Catfish, walleye, and sauger are also hitting on a floating jig head and a minnow.
