Guest with a northern caught at Lost Island Lake.Iowa's natural lakes region offers some of the best fishing around. Lost Island Lake offers walleye, bullhead, crappie, bluegill, northern pike, catfish, and yellow perch.

Angling is a very significant part of this multi-use lake. Bullhead fishing in the spring, early summer and fall can be tremendous. The panfish fisheries consisting of black crappie and to a lesser extent bluegill and yellow perch can provide the angler with variety. The walleye fishing can be superb in the spring and fall with an occasional northern pike creeled.

Redwood Resort offers boat slip and lift rental for visitors bringing their boats. Boating is allowed on the lake with no size limit on boat motors. Public boat ramps have a hard surface for ease in launching and docking of boats.
