Lake Belva Deer Fishing Reports

3 posts in this topic

Lake Belva Deer (Keokuk): The warmer weather has started to bring the anglers out but they have not been having much luck. Construction is continuing on the road into the campground or South end of the park. The Lake can be accessed from the north boat ramp or from the park road from the dam past the cabins.

Lake Geode (Henry): More anglers are starting to come out again as the weather starts to warm up. Look for the fish to move into the shallows on the warm afternoons.

Bluegill - Good: While they are not nesting yet, they are in shallow to take advantage of the abundant insects attracted to the warmer water. The water remains clear and the fish are very spooky. Largemouth bass - Good: Anglers are seeing some of the bass starting to set up territories in the shallow waters. Crappie - Good: Anglers are still catching some nice crappies in the spawning areas in the flooded timber.

Most areas of the lake have 6+ inches of ice. Concentrate your efforts in the flooded timber around the old creek channel. The county plans on sanding the hill down to the ramp.

Look for the water to cloud back up with the rain.

Bluegill fishing has been good. Anglers are fishing in the flooded timber out by the creek channel.

Crappie fishing has been good as well. Fish the same areas as for bluegills. Look about 2 to 3 feet off the bottom.
