Dickcisssel is located at the intersection of Highway 30 and Highway 17. This small 38 acre parcel includes a 15 acre pond open for year round fishing. Species you may find here include largemouth bass and yellow perch. Dickcissel has been managed by the Boone County Conservation Board since 1973. Hunting is not permitted at this area.
NOTICE: Because of a carp problem, during the spring of 2015, Dickcissel Lake underwent a fish renovation project. All fish were eliminated and the lake was restocked with largemouth bass and yellow perch. Funding for this project came from a State Fish Habitat Grant.
In August of 2016, Dickcissel was stocked with 950, 4-5" perch, provided by the Iowa DNR Fisheries!
