Iowa's county conservation system sports more than 342 lakes and ponds, 676 stream or river accesses and thousands of acres of water for visitors to hook into some of the state's finest angling opportunities. From the pristine spring-fed trout streams in NE Iowa to thunderous reservoirs in Central and Southern Iowa, you can fly fish for the beautiful brown or rainbow trout or wrestle with northern pike, large mouth bass or river sturgeon & catfish. Many of the lakes and ponds under county conservation supervision have great watershed management providing crystal clear waters for all types of outdoor recreation. For a complete listing of fishing regulations, visit the Iowa Department of Natural Resources website for additional information. Enjoy your fishing, and of course, the subsequent fish stories you will have to tell!
