Amenities

Amenities at Lansing Wildlife Area Creek include:
  • Trails
Brook Trout - Fair: Fish the weed lines and head end of riffles for actively feeding fish. Terrestrial insects abundant.
Brown Trout - Good: Dirty water favors Brown Trout anglers. Increasing terrestrial insect numbers such as crickets, beetles, grasshoppers washing into streams creates a feeding frenzy for brownies.
Rainbow Trout - Good: A few streams get too warm for stocking Rainbow Trout during the heat of the summer, specifically July and August. This is an annual occurrence. Not to worry. Plenty of fish remain in the streams. Stocking the other streams continues as scheduled.
Wild parsnip beginning to dry out. Protect yourself from this plant by keeping arms and legs covered. This plants sap can cause serious blisters. Most area trout stream flows remain elevated. Clarity much improved. Use care when crossing or fishing in faster current.

Access to this stream is challenging. It is very small and remote. Unfortunately in May 2009/2010, fingerling French Creek strain Brown Trout were stocked in the lower end of the stream and then in May 2012/2013 fingerling South Pine strain Brook Trout were stocked near the headwaters. 2017 sampling efforts determined the presence of a viable Brook Trout population genetically similar to its parent stock (South Pine). Brown Trout are currently being removed from this system to reduce competition for the brookies. No map is available for this stream.(2021)

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.
