West Okoboji Lake near Arnolds Park, Iowa
The fishing in West Okoboji Lake is some of the best in all of Iowa. Even people in other states have heard of this lake and some will even drive hours and hours to fish here. That’s how good the fishing is. If that peaks your interest I have a few tips that might help you. A lot of people tend to overcomplicate fishing when you think about it. There are a few spots and lures that will produce almost all the time for all species. Try fishing shallow bays, fallen trees, boat docks, and inlets with spinners, live bait, soft plastics, and jigs in the spring. The rest of the year you can boat fish by throwing crankbaits, jigs, spoons, spinners, topwaters, swimbaits, and live bait at weedlines, points, rock piles, baitfish schools, and main lake structure such as flats or humps.
