Things you should know about tournament fishing Brinker Lake in Waterloo, Iowa at George Wyth State Park.
Brinker Lake is one of the few places anglers can get their bass boats up on plane in Waterloo. This creates heavy weekend traffic and other recreational boat traffic for fishing conditions.
Brinker can be separated into four areas. From under the bridge to the back calmer water yields shallower and less wind pushed waters. There is a shallow cove that holds smaller bass and a timber longer timber style cove that has nicer bass in the right conditions. The northern edges of this are are ringed by rock and some big timber laydowns to often hold nice fish. The bridge supplies much needed shade but has little structure except the concrete. Both ends of the bridge hold nice rock and fish from time to time.
Leaving the bridge and ramp area you’ll head out toward the open lake and island waters. Deep water can be found surrounding the island between the banks. Scan around and you’ll find some hard bottom areas and deep structure. Baitfish ball up in this area and bass follow them deep to shallow and back. While this might be hard to find, the bigger bass frequent these deeper pockets year round.
