Northwest Iowa Weekend Fishing Report From Iowa DNR

Iowa DNR

The 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

 

Big Spirit Lake

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 fishermen 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: bluegills should start to move shallower as the water cools. Continue to fish around weed edges and open pockets.

 

Storm Lake (including Little Storm Lake)

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.  Fishing remains the same as last week at Storm.  Channel Catfish – Good: Anglers drift fishing with night crawlers have been doing good.  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.

 

Little Sioux River (Linn Grove to Correctionville)

Good sized catfish are being caught in the deeper pools.  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.  A few walleye can be caught using night crawlers for bait.  The river is in good condition for wading right now.

 

Little Sioux River (Correctionville to Missouri River)

Walleye have been biting good on white twisters.  Fish in the morning and evening hours and focus efforts around rocky habitat and deeper water.
