DNR Fishing Report

December 03, 2015

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources issued their weekly fishing report on Thursday, in an effort to provide the latest information heading into the weekend.
For Storm Lake, including Little Storm Lake, parts of the lake are starting to ice over, but the entire lake will likely be ice free with the higher daytime temperatures predicted after this weekend. Very few angler reports are available at this time. Walleye regulations for Storm Lake are three fish per day, all fish between 17 and 22 inches must be released, and only one over 22 inches may be kept.
For Black Hawk Lake in Lake View, the lake level is 11 inches above crest, and water temperatures are in the mid 30’s. Parts of the lake are starting to ice over, but the entire lake will likely be ice free with the higher daytime temperatures predicted after this weekend. Very few reports of fishing activity are available at this time.
The weekly fishing report is compiled from information gathered from local bait shops, angler creel surveys, and county and state parks staff.
