The gizzard shad removal of 2015 was successful. Crappie abundance in 2016 was excellent and size quality is very good. Large numbers of 10- to 13-inch crappies are available to anglers. Bluegill abundance is good and size quality is moderate. We collected good numbers of 6- to 8-inch bluegills in the 2016 sampling. Channel catfish abundance is low at this time, but stocking efforts in 2016 and 2017 should help improve that issue.(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.
