Little River Lake is approximately 787 acres and offers excellent fishing opportunities for that avid angler.  Completed in 1985, Little River Lake offers largemouth bass, walleye, bluegill, crappie, and channel catfish. 


There are two main boat ramps located at Little River Lake along with two smallers boat ramps up in the north end. 


Little River Lake has a no horse power limit but boats must maintain a no wake speed in certain areas.  These areas are marked by no wake signs.  The north end of the lake is mainly flooded timber with a lot of the stumps no visible to boaters, so caution is advised when traveling in this area.  Little River Bait Shop is located at the second boat ramp near the beach/campground area.  Little River Bait Shop offers live bait, fishing tackle, camping supplies, firewood, etc.  The phone number to contact the bait shop is (641)-446-8909. 

Several fishing jetties are located around the lake and makes for great fishing for the sportsman without a boat.  All jetties are handicap accessible. 


Open all year around for fishing.
