The fishery at Littlefield Lake is currently well balanced. Expect good crappie (10-inches) fishing in the spring and bluegills (8-inches) in the summer. The largemouth bass populations was below average based on a May of 2014 electrofishing survey. Channel catfish stocked into Littlefield on a semi-annual basis survive and grow into the fishery. A good group of 15-inch catfish were present when the lake was last surveyed with nets in 2013. Overall this is a good lake to fish.(2016)

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. Here is a list of current fish consumption advisories for Iowa lakes and rivers.
