Catfishing has been good late in the day.

For information on lakes in the Southwest District call the Cold Springs office at (712) 769-2587.

Channel Catfish - Good: Fish the west shoreline for catfish with prepared stink bait or cut bait.

Freshwater Drum - Fair: Freshwater drum is a species that does not get targeted often. They are very good to eat, easy to catch and put up a good fight. Cast a nightcrawler on the bottom with a small split shot or slip weight for best success.

Walleye - Fair: Troll crankbaits on west side of the lake. Cast leech or crawler under a slip bobber around Tin Can dyke. The dredge cuts will also hold walleyes.
