Fisheries Management Offices

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has 16 fish management offices, responsible for ensuring quality fishing in Iowa’s lakes, ponds, rivers and streams. Biologists and technicians from these offices create fish habitat, accessible shorelines, improved water quality and much more. They are excellent resources for fishing information for anglers in their local areas. This map shows the districts (either a 7-10 county area or a section of the Mississippi or Missouri Rivers) each office manages:
