Anglers are catching crappie and bluegill in Big Woods Lake.

The interior rivers have bumped up with the recent rainfall events. Trout streams are in excellent condition. Anglers have been catching some walleye, smallmouth bass, channel catfish and northern pike on the interior rivers. Black Hawk county area lakes are winding down for crappie but are targeting bluegill with the upcoming spawn. For further information contact your local area bait shops for the most recent hot spots.

Black Crappie - Fair: The lake is up but concentrate efforts in the shallows near structure with a crappie minnow under a slip bobber or casting colored tube jigs.

Largemouth Bass - Fair: Try casting spinnerbaits, crankbaits or top water baits for some good largemouth bass action.

Bluegill - Fair: Fish the shallow water areas off of the jetties or cove areas with a piece of worm or crawler under a slip bobber.
