In 1953 it was observed that the fishes taken by anglers in Trumbull Lake, Clay County, Iowa, were "grubby" or wormy" and hence considered unfit for human consumption. This study was undertaken to ascertain in greater detail the parasite fauna of that area. Work was begun in the summer of 1954 and collections were made intermittently through the summers of 1954 and 1955. All fish were examined at the Iowa Lakeside Laboratory, Lake Okoboji, Iowa. Final identifications of the parasites were completed at Iowa State College during 1956 and 1957.
