Crappie density at Lake Fisher is high and size quality is good. Fish up to 12 inches are fairly common. Bluegill size quality is poor with very few fish over 6 inches available. This is largely due to the high abundance of gizzard shad which have a negative impact on the food web and reduce prey availability for bluegill and larval fish of all species. Largemouth bass density is relatively low and size quality is moderate. Most fish are between 13 and 18 inches. Poor recruitment has resulted in very few largemouth less than 12 inches being present in the population. Gizzard shad abundance is very high as is yellow bass abundance which also negatively impact bluegill numbers and largemouth bass recruitment.(2017)

Some limitations may apply for young children and pregnant women. Here’s a Fish Consumption Fact Sheet from the Iowa DNR and the Iowa Dept. of Public Health for more information.
