    fishing in ames?

    I tried that ada hayden park north of town on grand, but there is no cover, so you'd prolly need a boat. i found a smaller pond tucked back in the woods over there, but i didnt really have any luck. is there anywhere good to fish in or near ames?

    Re: fishing in ames?

    I fish ALL THE TIME near Ames.

    The skunk river is a great place to catch smallmouth bass, bluegill, cat.

    I mainly go for the smallies.

    Wading the river between Ames and Story City is great. Of course the river depth is way too high right now.

    Hickory Grove is a park near Colo and offers some ok shore fishing at a small lake.

    Go North on to the end of Dayton Ave .. hang a right and out there is McFarland Park. Ok little pond to catch some bluegills.

    Re: fishing in ames?

    Anyone have any good spots IN AMES on the skunk river or squaw or college creeks? specifics please?

    All I really have with me is an ultra light with some 3 inch power grubs and jigheads. those'll prolly do fine for some bass, but is there any bait shop in ames?

    I heard you can catch more than just fish in there.

    first of all, the " OMG THERE IS ANOTHER THREAD ALREADY THIS WORLD IS GOING TO END" schtick around here is getting old.

    second of all, I did not find the answer I was looking for, and this was probably a half a year ago so rather than STARTING A NEW THREAD OMG, I bumped my old thread because I knew people would just point me back to it. Can't win for losing around here.

    Ultra light wiht three inch power grubs and jig head s will work great in Ames.

    Go to the softball fields on 13th street in Ames and drive back to the North of them. Fish below the little spillway. You can catch a ton of fish on that stretch of River. Mostly smallies, cats, bluegills.

    Great stretch of river if the river depth is right and is pretty good for just a quick easy bit of fishing.

    Re: fishing in ames?

    If you head south of Ames on Duff and turn at Ken Merril Road (last blinking light in south Ames) and drive to the end. You will see an old road that leads out to the river, you can fish right off of the old bridge. Great catfishing (use jumbo shrimp) and if you see an older gentleman with a mustache fishing, just call him Uncle Dale and let him know Tommy sent you.
