DNR releases fishing report for Southeast Iowa

Nov 23, 2012

Red Haw Lake

Try small jigs for bluegills in six-to-eight feet of water.


Lake Sugema

Fishing activity has slowed. Try minnows for crappies along flooded timber areas and around rocky shorelines. Slow presentation as the water cools down for largemouth bass.


Rathbun Reservoir

The lake level is 903.31 feet with 904 feet being normal. The surface water temperature is 47 degrees. Fishing has been slow. Some anglers have been catching crappie along the boat docks in the marinas. Don't forget Lake Rathbun contains zebra mussels so make sure to clean, drain, and dry boats before transporting to another water body.


For questions regarding fishing in south central Iowa, call the Rathbun Fish Hatchery at 641-647-2406.
