Little Sioux Park boasts very clear water, which can make fishing difficult. In spring, fish for bluegill in the northeast end of the lake and look for nests. Bluegills are commonly 7.5- to 8-inches. Later in the year drift fish the main body of the lake in deeper water. The largemouth bass population is fair. Most bass are sub-legal size, but a few larger fish can be found once in a while. Channel catfish are numerous, but their body condition isn't great. Channel catfish stockings have been reduced to improve the body condition of the catfish already in the lake.(2017)
