Fish Butcher:
All I know is from near where I live. NW Iowa by Spirit Lake. Some small ponds are ok. Go to Iowa Fishing Reports And Conditions for my latest report.

I live in SW Iowa (near Glenwood) and was wondering how far north I'd need to go this Saturday (Dec. 10) to find fishable ice?
Looks to be a decent day temp wise, and I'm itching to get on ice and try!
Thanks in advance for any ideas and locations!

The HWY30 area from Boone to Carroll may have 2-3" on the more protected ponds. I haven't been out since the big cold spell in November. It's been a weird year so far. Temps hovering around 38-42 in the day and lows in the teens at night with maybe a day with lows in the single digits mixed in every other week. The only ponds that I've seen with open water are the ones with geese on them. Everything else has been locked up for 3 weeks now.

I might spud the Boone park pond tomorrow night or Saturday morning. May even drive up around Hwy 20 to check ice conditions but they are calling for 3-5" of snow for Ft Dodge

You can check on face book, with TBE bait shops at the IGL.

There is bays and areas you'll be able to get out on and fish for panfish. People will be out just have common sense

bert29:
thanks for info (those who replied!) I was hoping Blackhawk Lake near Lakeview was ready to fish, but I'm guessing not--especially with slightly warmer temps and possibly some rain from the system today. I might have to wait until weekend of 17th (if weather cooperates!)

crappeye:
1.5 of ice on a small Crawford county pond today. Raining here now. Gonna be another week or two.
