Latest Northwest Iowa Fishing Report 4/13/12

Big Spirit Lake

Walleye and musky season is closed.   Panfish are being caught off the North Grade and Templar Park. A few smallmouth bass along with white bass may be caught on rock piles in various parts of the lake.  Largemouth Bass – Slow: A few largemouths have moved to pre-spawn areas around the lake.

East Okoboji Lake

Walleye and musky season is closed. Bullhead – Fair: Try using worms on bottom.  Yellow Bass – Good: Many yellow bass are being caught try looking for rocks and wood and use small baits.

 Silver Lake (Dickinson)

White Bass – Fair: Try using baits that represent minnows such as Rapalas and twister tails.

 West Okoboji Lake

Walleye and musky season is closed.  Due to being the deepest lake in the chain the water is not warming up as fast as the other lakes but is still ahead of normal.  Panfish and largemouth bass are being caught in the canals as well as in some of the bays.  Both largemouth and smallmouth bass may be caught near docks and there outskirts a few white bass and northern pike may be picked up at the same time.

The warm spring has brought upon above average water temperatures for this time of year and the fish are responding accordingly.  Most if not all courtesy docks are in. For more information on fishing in northwest Iowa, call the Spirit Lake hatchery at 712-336-1840.
