Black Crappie - Fair: Cast small jigs around rocky shorelines to find spawning crappie. Sorting will be necessary as there is a large year class of 6 inch crappies in the lake this year.

Black crappie are beginning to spawn on the underwater reefs and jetties in the lake.

Bluegill - Fair: Bluegills can be caught around the reefs and on the rockpiles out from the campground.

FISHING FORECAST
Expect to find 8- to 9-inch bluegills and 13- to 18-inch largemouth bass. The 2019 fish surveys show two age classes of black crappie; 10-11 inch and 8-9 inch that will provide good crappie fishing in 2020. Channel catfish maintenance stockings produced a good population of 15- to 17-inch fish with some trophy sized >20-inch fish in the population. Fingerling walleye stocked by the Friends of Lake Anita has generated a lot of excitement as some of those walleyes now exceed 20-inches. Lake Anita is one of the better overall fishing lakes in SW Iowa.(2020)
