For lake updates and fishing information for Northwest Iowa, contact the Spirit Lake Fish Hatchery at 712-336-1840. Bluegill - Fair: Small ice jigs tipped with red worms or other live bait when presented near weedlines is producing some angler acceptable fish right now. Early morning seems to be when most folks are fishing these spots. Channel Catfish - Good: Cut bait, chicken livers, and stink bait presented in the evenings and overnight hours is producing a number of nice agressive catfish for anglers. Walleye - Fair: Anglers with the best success are working deeper areas with both live bait rigs and deep running crank baits. Trolling across the deep ends of structure is producing a few nice keepers. Make sure to slow your presentation way down when using live bait, fish have been hitting very softly. Yellow Bass - Good: Deep weed lines and structures are providing the best action to anglers who use small jigs tipped with live bait. Yellow Perch - Fair: Pilkies tipped with red worms worked near rocky points have been producing a few nice perch. Be prepared to sort some small ones, but anglers can count on keeping some for the freezer.

Channel Catfish - No Report: Fish after dark with bait on the bottom will produce excellent angling for this species. Bluegill - No Report: Fish the north end for bluegill and crappie action early. Fish the wooden docks on the west side of the lake early, as the water warms fish docks located on the east side. Cast a mini jig to locate panfish, persistence and patience will be rewarded with a mix bag of crappie, bluegill and yellow perch. Walleye - Slow: Very little walleye activity from East Okoboji Lake, best action will occur at night until water clarity declines.
