The class has changed a lot in 15 years. Technology has been a big part of that and the fact that every day on the water is a learning experience. All I do in these classes is to share what I have learned the hard way over a 20 year career chasing walleye.”

Iowa Walleye: Widespread Gains for Anglers as Researchers Build Fishing “Field of Dreams”

  View Printable Version 

DES MOINES - No one who has ever seen Field of Dreams can forget the signature line from that motion picture: “Build it and they will come.”

What if the scenario of a mythic Iowa cornfield was changed just a bit: no ball diamonds, but fishing lakes amidst fields of Iowa corn? And what if the fabled legend to emerge from another era was a fish, one that’s particular about its need for clear, clean water?

Walleye Mania: For Clear Lake's Most Popular Game Fish - The Bite is On!

  View Printable Version 

PHOTO: Mike Britt of Owatonna, Minnesota, displays a mixed catch of walleye and yellow bass. The Minnesota angler bagged the fish while wading at the Clear Lake Island. In addition to taking his limit, Britt also caught and released several more walleye during the late afternoon outing.
In spite of the fact that he resides in The Land of 10,000 Lakes, Britt makes frequent excursions to Clear Lake.
“I usually have my best success here during early spring and summer,” says Britt. “I also do a lot of fishing in Minnesota and my friends give me grief over coming down here [Iowa] to fish. I just tell them, ‘That’s OK. You guys just stay up here and I’ll keep going down to Clear Lake’.”
Britt shared his Clear Lake Island excursion with 27 other anglers. Twenty-five of those anglers caught fish. Nearly all took limits of walleye.

CLEAR LAKE – One of my annual outdoor goals is to hook a walleye on the very first cast of the spring fishing season. Although I’ve never been successful at achieving the dream, I came pretty close this year.

I didn’t begin fishing until last week, and the walleye spawn was approaching its peak as I waded into the chilly waters of Clear Lake. The sky was overcast and the shoreline was littered with rock --- prime conditions for shallow water, early season spawners.

Other anglers were already on the scene, including my son Matt. Wading in that direction I was pleased to discover that, in less than 15 minutes of fishing, he had already taken two legal walleye and had just released a sub-legal, 13-incher.

Rice Lake Provides Unlikely Home for North Iowa Walleyes

  View Printable Version 

PHOTO: Retired Lake Mills math instructor, Frank Banwart, spends a quiet afternoon fishing for walleyes at Winnebago County’s Rice Lake. “I’ve been getting a few crappies and some small bullheads lately, but mostly I’ve been catching walleyes,” says Banwart. “I let most of the fish go. I don’t want to keep anything that is full of eggs.”
“I definitely like ice fishing the best, but fall fishing is so peaceful. Even if I’m not catching anything, I hate to go home,” he grinned.

LAKE MILLS---Wary, scrappy, and elusive the walleye is regarded as a prized gamefish wherever it occurs. In Iowa, peak populations are most frequently associated with big waters --- the Iowa Great Lakes, the Mississippi river, or the larger of our interior streams.

Mention walleyes to a north central Iowa angler, for example, and the conversation will immediately turn to Clear Lake --- one the state’s premier walleye fisheries. But those anglers who have been around the block a time or two will tell you that there is always more than one way to skin a cat, and more than one place to hook a walleye.
