Guide To Fishing At Trumbull Lake
AKA: Trumbull Slough
Dense vegetation lines much of the 7 miles of shoreline at Trumbull Lake, a 1,180-acre lake in northwest Iowa 2 miles north of Ruthven. Northern pike and yellow perch thrive in these aquatic shelters which provide great nesting areas for fry.
The lake has virtually no facilities except for a boat launch ramp on the west side of the lake off 310th Street. Canoes, kayaks and portables are popular here.
