Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, black crappie, walleye, bluegill, yellow perch and muskie at Black Hawk Lake in Iowa.
Black Hawk Lake, IA

Considered one of the better fishing lakes in northwest Iowa, Black Hawk Lake is conveniently located at the town of Lake View. The lake covers 950 acres and has over a dozen miles of shoreline. Anglers pursue bass, catfish, crappie, walleye, perch and muskie throughout the year, including some productive ice fishing in winter. Most of the lake is surrounded by private homes, many of which have boat docks. There are plenty of access points around the lake for fishing from the bank as well as a fish house, provided by the Iowa DNR. The lake has plenty of cover for both fish and bait, including boat docks, trees, vegetation and rocky shorelines. Several boat launch ramps are available to the public for launching fishing boats, pleasure boats and pontoons. Canoes and kayaks can be portage from the Blackhawk State Park as well as other public access areas. There are three camping areas, plus lodging at the lake.
