Class II North Skunk River, IA

North Skunk River Water Trail (Kellogg to Skunk River Wildlife Area)

Both the North Skunk and South Skunk flow through timbered ridges and agricultural lands. The northern reaches are productive for smallmouth bass and channel catfish, and the lower reaches offer flathead catfish, bullhead, carp, crappie, and sunfish. Snags offer great habitat for fish, but may be hazards to paddlers. Proceed with caution and portage when necessary‚ÄĒremember to always respect private property. (Iowa DNR)
