Courtesy docks are in for the season. Water temperatures are in the upper 60s to low 70s. Most area water levels are a few inches over crest. In general the fish bite has been very good across most areas. Fishing from docks is getting easier as fish move to shallower water to spawn.

Black Crappie - Fair:

The water temperature is in the low 70s.

Bluegill - Fair: Try using a small hook and piece of worm.

Walleye - Good:

Yellow Perch - Fair: Sorting will most likely be needed.

Courtesy docks are in for the season. Water temperatures are in the upper 50s and low 60s. Most area water levels are a few inches over crest. Most fish are still out in deeper water, but should begin to make their way shallower as water temperatures increase. Also check out Iowa's Walleye Challenge that runs 5/1 - 6/30 for statewide prizes for anglers.

The water temperature is in the lower 60s. The walleye season is now open.

Ice conditions are still ok for foot traffic in a few areas, but finding a safe way to get on the ice may be hard as shorelines and some bays are starting to open up. The weather forecast calls for much warmer weather, so expect ice conditions to quickly diminish. Open water season is just around the corner. The walleye season on the Iowa Great Lakes is closed until May 6th.

Black Crappie - Good: Try small jigs tipped with a minnow or tube jig and bobber.

Bluegill - Good: Try tube jigs, plastics or other small jigs.

Ice conditions are ok in some areas, but access can be hard to find. Expect conditions to diminish. The walleye season is currently closed.

Northern Pike - Good: Tip ups have been working well.

Yellow Perch - Fair: Minnows have been working well, some sorting may be needed.

Most larger lakes have 16 inches of ice or more, but shorelines and accesses have thinner ice due to runoff. Colder weather maintained ice levels. Vehicle use is more limited in certain areas. The walleye season on the Iowa Great Lakes is closed until May 6th. Permanent and non-permanent ice shacks must be removed from the ice when not occupied.

Black Crappie - Good: Try small jigs tipped with a minnow or tube jig and bobber.

The lake has around 17+ inches in most areas. The walleye season is currently closed.

Bluegill - Good: Try tube jigs, plastics or other small jigs.

Northern Pike - Good: Tip ups have been working well.

Yellow Perch - Fair: Minnows have been working well, some sorting may be needed.
