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

Northwest Iowa

West Okoboji Lake

There is 18-22 inches of ice. Northern Pike – Slow: Tip-ups fished near weed beds have provided some action. Bluegill – Slow: Most have been targeting Emerson and Millers Bay and weeds have been a key factor. The fishing has been hit or miss: some days are much better than others.  Yellow Perch – Fair: Fish are in 40 plus feet of water and lots of small fish have been caught.  Keep in mind that fish coming out of deep water have a higher mortality rate.

Big Spirit Lake

There is 22-24 inches of ice.  Bluegill – Slow: Anglers Bay has put out a few bluegills all winter; the numbers are not great but they are quality fish.  Most activity is early and late in the day. Crappie – Slow: Like the bluegills crappie activity has been best early and late in the day in Anglers Bay.  Yellow Perch – Slow: Adult perch numbers are low but many five-inch perch have been observed with underwater cameras. Walleye – Slow: Walleye fishing has been very slow with only a handful being caught. Underwater cameras have shown many fish coming in with no interest in the offering.

Silver Lake (Dickinson)

There is 22-24 inches of ice and a few shacks on the main lake basin.

Storm Lake (including Little Storm Lake)

Ice conditions range from 15-20 inches. Walleye – Slow: Fish are being caught on small spoons tipped with minnow heads. Most are around 10 inches with a few slot fish also being caught. Best areas have been near the Methodist Manor and Chautauqua Park jetty. Geese have a small open hole between the islands. All walleye between 17-22 inches must be immediately released and no more than one over 22 inches may be kept per day.  The daily limit is three.
