DNR Lake Iola Information

         Welcome to the Lake Iola Lake District. Lake Iola is a 220 acre impoundment of the South Branch of the Little Wolf River, located in the Northwestern part of Waupaca County, WI. Maximum depth averages 9 feet. Fish include Northern Pike, Largemouth Bass and Panfish.

Current Fish Limit


The term "panfish" is defined as any of the following species: bluegill, pumpkinseed, black and white crappie, yellow perch, green sunfish, warmouth and orange spotted sunfish.

All of these species would count towards the 10 aggregate bag limit that is now in place for panfish on Iola Lake. The most common species that an angler is likely to catch in Iola Lake would be bluegill, pumpkinseed, black crappie, and yellow perch. All of these species are found in central and southern WI so anglers could catch any of them in Iola Lake.

Also keep in mind the daily limit of 10 panfish. Signs are posted at the dam and at the boat landings. Thank you.
