Tag Archives: Iowa fishing reports

August 12th 2014, Pony Creek, Glenwood IA

Today I went by myself in the afternoon for a few hours to a lake I had driven by a few times. My dad had told me he used to fish this lake a long time ago but I had no recent reports.

The boat ramp I choose was steep and I hadn’t realized there was a different one until I was leaving.  The lake itself had surprisingly clear water and deep as well, it for to 25ft deep in the spots of the channel I went over. I fished all the way up the west side and started catching a few fish on a Scheels brand spinner bait and a pig and jig.  After a few minutes I hooked into something huge and it took me a really long fight to get in.  Once I did it ended up being an 18lb flathead that I got so excited about catching that I released it without remembering to take a picture!

I did end up catching 10-15 bass all between 12-17 inches.  They seemed to be healthy and this lake was a fun place to fish and was very close to Omaha. I will be definitely be going back in the future.

Enjoy the pictures.

Overall Ranking: 4 Star

This lake is great size, depth and location.  It was very beautiful being in the hills and the fishing was awesome.  The only reason I didn’t give this lake a 5 star ranking is because the boat ramps were not in good shape and did have a dock at them.
