Description:

A few miles south of Icaria is 80-acre Lake Binder, that was also renovated in 2004. Binder now offers excellent fishing for 9-inch crappies from its shore, largemouth bass fishing has really improved and the bluegills are acceptable size at just under 8 inches.

"A fishing trip to Binder in late April or early May would definitely be worth while for anyone who likes to catch fish," Larson said.

Binder Lake was built in 1942 as a potable water source for the city of Corning and is located in

southwestern Iowa about 1 mile northeast of Corning, Iowa. The current surface area of the

lake is approximately 80 acres (based on 2001 land use data).

Binder Lake is owned and managed by the City of Corning. The lake provides facilities for

fishing, boating, swimming, camping, picnicking, hiking, and hunting. Game fish include

largemouth bass, yellow bass, bluegill, crappie, catfish, and carp. Park use is approximately

34,000 visits per year.
