Iowa DNR Labor Day Weekend Fishing Report

Iowa DNRFor lake locations, maps and other information, go to www.iowadnr.gov/Fishing/FishingReports.aspx

 

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

Brushy Creek Lake

Water clarity has improved at Brushy Creek.  Bluegill fishing is decent in 15 to 20 feet of water.  Walleye and crappie fishing have slowed down.

 

Storm Lake (including Little Storm Lake)

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

 

Big Spirit Lake

Smallmouth Bass – Slow: Look around rock piles and weed lines for smallmouth 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: Fish seem to be scattered try weeds, rocks, and out in the basin some days are better than others.  Shore fishermen have also been catching a few slots.

 

West Okoboji Lake

Bluegill – Fair: 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.  Smallmouth Bass – Slow: The smallies have been relating more so to deeper weed edges and drop offs.  Largemouth Bass – Fair: Look for weed pockets or weed edges for largemouth.

 

Lost Island Lake

A few anglers are finding a few walleyes trolling spinners.  A few white bass are also being found on the outside of the docks.

 

Little Sioux River (state line to Linn Grove)

The water is low and the 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)

Look for deep holes in the river and anglers should find catfish and they are biting good.  Use night crawlers, stink bait, cut bait, chicken liver, or shrimp.
