Big Creek Lake Sponsored by
Date 21-Aug-16
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Big Creek Lake: Walleye - Fair: Troll spinner rigs with minnows or crawlers in 5-15 feet of water. Focus on the upper/shallower 1/3rd of the lake. The east arm out from and above the marina has been producing more fish. Flows coming in from the creeks will attract fish to the silt dam notches. Cast shallow diving crankbaits in these areas. White Bass - Fair: Anglers are catching white bass near schools of shad. Use your depth finder to locate the shad and look for larger fish surrounding the school. Use jigging spoons or crankbaits.

About: - Big Creek Lake provides excellent fishing year-round. The lake's clear waters are stocked with crappie, bluegill, largemouth bass, walleye, channel catfish and muskie. The lake is popular for a variety of boating activities. Any size motor may be operated at "no wake" speeds on the lake. Five modern boat ramps, three on the west side and two on the east, provide excellent access to the lake. A gravel ramp is located on the upper end of the lake. Sailboat rigging zones and vehicle parking areas are at each modern ramp. A 102-berth "dry-dock" area is at the northeast corner of the park. Arrangements for rental of dry-docking space may be made through the park office. A fishing pier is accessible to the mobility impaired.

Location: Nearby Towns, Polk City is two miles south on Iowa Highway 415. Des Moines is 11 miles south. Ankeny is 8 miles south-east. Madrid is seven miles north. Ames is 20 miles north.
