Ice conditions are generally 8" inches or greater on most all lakes and ponds in east-central Iowa. Remain cautious while ice-fishing; avoid areas with water current or discolored ice. Ice fishing has been extremely slow but should pick up around the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area with warmer weather predicted ahead. Mornings and evenings have been best. Call area/local bait shops for the most up to date reports or the Manchester Hatchery at 563-927-3276

Angling pressure on Brinker Lake has increased with the warmer temperatures expected ahead.

Black Crappie - Slow: Locate structure and use electronics to find suspended fish. Use a small ice jig tipped with a waxworm or try a minnow on a deadstick.
