Ringneck Haven had a partial winterkill in 2014 and is now overpopulated with green sunfish according to spring 2015 electrofishing results. The Iowa DNR is currently in the process to rebuild the fishery. In spring 2015, it stocked 200 fingerling northern pike, 400 2-inch channel catfish, 280 2-inch largemouth bass, 5,000 inch long Yellow Perch, and 100 8- to 10-inch largemouth. In 2016, an additional 500 fingerling northern pike were stocked. Please release any bass, pike, perch and catfish if caught until the sunfish population is under control.
