Newton Lake

Hey guys, how is this lake for bass? I currently go to the University of Iowa and in March we are having the annual Big 10 Bass Fishing Championship on this lake.

I've started doing some research and it sounds like one side is warmer than the other because of a power plant. The tournament is probably around the time when the bass will be in the different stages of the spawn considering what side of the lake you are on. I don't want your spots or your favorite lures that you use, just some general info on the lake like water clarity, max depth, grass, wood, rocks? Any info would be great.Thanks!

Wow - I am sure this late but I used to be a regular there. I upgraded my boat and it is not longer legal for the lake. To find fish in the cooler months try the warm side of the lake - don't get too close to the power plant little fish hang out real close to it. Find holes and drops off of the points on the warm side. I use crank baits to get real deep. Remember the fish will be a little ahead of other fish when it comes to pattern because of the heated water. In the warmer months I go to the 'cold' side of the lake and basically do the same thing. Good Luck! I hope this is not too late.

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
