Smallmouth Spots Near Central IA

Recommended Posts

Central Iowa can be a little tricky I think- I used to fish the skunk river a lot when I was in school. At that time there were a lot of 12" fish but I did find a few pushing 4lbs. That river has changed a bunch in the past 15 years though. I would think there's some quality fish in the Des Moines River (there's a bit of everything it seems in there), but I wouldn't think the numbers would be super high.


I've always heard about river fishing towards the northeast part of the state as well.


Good Luck!
