Iowa Fishing Report

Lakes & Reservoirs

Lake Rathbun Sponsored by
Date 21-Aug-16
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Lake Rathbun: The current lake level is 905.39. The current surface water temperature is in the lower 80's degrees. Lake Rathbun contains zebra mussels so make sure to properly drain, clean, and dry equipment before transporting to another water body. Walleye - Slow: Fishing remains slower than a month ago. Anglers are still catching walleye, just not as many at each spot. Try crankbaits that mimic gizzard shad in submerged points and rock piles. Anglers have been trolling or drifting crankbaits and crawler harnesses in these areas. White Bass - Fair: Anglers are catching white bass with chrome colored crankbaits or lead heads and white jigs. Rathbun also contains hybrid striped bass (wipers); use the same techniques used for white bass. Channel Catfish - Fair: Look for areas with water flowing into the lake. Use night crawlers or cut bait.
