Abstract

Little Wall Lake, in Hamilton County (R 24W, T 86N, Sec. 9, 10, 15 and 16), is a shallow prairie lake of approximately 273 acres (Iowa State Conservation Commission, 1952, p. 158). The lake has been dry a number of times since the white man came. It is reported to have been dry in 1892, 1904-05, and 1936-41. In 1953 the Iowa State Conservation Commission dredged about 65 acres thereby providing an area of deeper water for recreational purposes. The present paper summarizes the observations which have been made on the fish populations of the lake from the time it filled up after the drought of the late 1930's until the dredging.
