|Ice is 14 inches on the lake. There is a good year class of quality size crappies present in Littlefield.|
|Bluegill - Fair: Eight inch bluegills can be caught in 8 to 10 feet of water with wax worms.|
|Crappie - Slow: A few 10 to 12 inch crappies were caught using glow in the dark jig heads with minnows. |
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 2013 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.(2013)
