Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the value of abandoned gravel pits in Iowa for the propagation of bluegill, Helioperca machrochira, and black crappie, Pomoxis spariodes. These observations were made at the Lake View fisheries station, located in Sac County. This area formerly constituted a series of thirty pits varying in size from a fraction of an acre to five acres. Several years ago the Iowa Fisheries Division stocked a number of fishes in one of the pools to ascertain their value for fish production. A marked degree of success attended their efforts, and an elaborate plan of development followed. The opportunity for carrying out this plan presented itself when the Veterans Conservation Corps camp was established at Lake View.
