    I'm down in Des Moines so I have never fished any of these places, but I fish a lot and know they are mentioned quite a bit. Ada Hayden, McFarland Pits and Hickory Grove are the ones I know of. This site will help you: Where to Fish, good luck, be safe. Ice is good most places, but still a wierd winter and some open water.

    This would be my choice although it is a little drive from Ames, the other two would be fine as well though and would be very close.
