Weekly Iowa DNR Fishing Report For Northwest Iowa

Iowa DNRThe Iowa Department of Natural Resources issues a weekly fishing report on Thursdays in an effort to provide the latest information heading into the weekend. The weekly fishing report is compiled from information gathered from local bait shops, angler creel surveys, and county and state parks staff. For current information, contact the district fisheries office at the phone number listed at the end of each district report.

 

NORTHWEST IOWA

 

Big Spirit Lake

Smallmouth Bass – Slow: Look around rock piles and weed lines with a combination being even better. Largemouth Bass – Slow: Fish have been found in a few different areas but there doesn’t seem to be a clear cut pattern.  Pitching docks, cranking weed lines, and top water early and late have all caught a few fish.  Walleye – Slow: Fishing continues to be slow but a few more fish are starting to come in.  Trolling live bait rigs as well as crankbaits early and late in the day seems to be the best.  Shore anglers are also catching a few.

 

East Okoboji Lake

Yellow Bass – Fair: Try a pilkie tipped with wigglers over rock piles.

 

West Okoboji Lake

Bluegill – Slow: Look for bluegills in and around weeds, with open pockets and weed edges being the most productive.  Live bait rigged on a slip bobber rig suspended just above the weeds has been good as well as jigging pilkies and small jigs. A few perch and yellow bass are also being picked up with this presentation.

 

Little Sioux River (state line to Linn Grove)

The water is low and fish are concentrated in deeper holes.  Try a white twister tail for walleye and a worm on bottom should catch just about anything.

 

Little Sioux River (Linn Grove to Correctionville)

Good sized catfish are taking chicken livers and chicken guts.  Use a slip sinker and hook and look for the current breaks along high banks preferably or the standard snags.  Anglers should really focus on the current breaks.

 

Storm Lake (including Little Storm Lake)

Fishing remains the same as last week.  Channel Catfish – Good: Drift fishing with night crawlers have been working.  White Bass – Fair: White bass can be caught pulling plugs, crankbaits, or casting white twisters.  Walleye – Slow: Pulling plugs or shad raps continue to be the best producers. The dredge machine on Storm Lake is in operation.  Stay clear of the dredge, booster pump, and pipeline that runs from the dredge to the east shore.

 

For more information contact the Spirit Lake Hatchery at 712-336-1840.
