I'm running late on this one but I feel it still is worthwhile info to pass along.


On the list are, divided by region are:

NW Iowa: West Okoboji in Dickinson County
Others to consider: Silver Lake in Dickinson County and Storm Lake in Buena Vista County both for fall walleye fishing.

SW Iowa: Little River Lake near Leon
Others to consider: Twelve Mile Lake and Green Valley Lake near Creston both for crappie and bluegill.

NE Iowa: Decorah
Others to consider: The DNR stocks trout in 50 trout in northeast Iowa in September and October. See the stocking calendar for locations.

SE Iowa: Mississippi River
Others to consider: Lake Belva Deer in Keokuk County for crappie, blue gill and bass, and Lost Grove Lake in Scott County, a newly renovated lake that has been aggressively stocked for the last two years.

Central Iowa: Banner Lake South, Summerset State Park
Others to consider: 17 additional locations for cold-weather lake trout stockings across Iowa; see the DNR stocking information.
