FISHING REPORT
Most small to medium area lakes have completely frozen over. Most large lakes are at least partially frozen over. No lakes currently offer safe ice for ice fishing. Area lake levels are currently low. The extended forecast calls for cooler temperatures which should steadily form ice.

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

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

The lake is essentially completely iced over, but with only 1-2 inches. The water level is 10 inches below crest.

Walleye - Fair: Try crawler harnesses, crank baits and minnows.

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

FISHING FORECAST
Good numbers of angler acceptable size yellow perch are currently present in East Okoboji Lake. Continued good growth throughout the summer 2019 will result in numbers of larger acceptable sized fish during the fall 2019 and winter 2019 – 2020 seasons. The untapped channel catfish population is present in good numbers in East Okoboji Lake and will provide excellent angling throughout the upcoming fishing season. Persistence and patience will produce nice catches dominated by angler acceptable size bluegill, black and white crappie. Continued good growth of these fish throughout the summer will result in good numbers of acceptable size fish for the following angling season. Anglers will continue to enjoy excellent yellow bass angling on East Okoboji Lake. Currently large numbers of angler acceptable size fish exists in the lake. (2019)
