Crow Creek WMA: a PSCW Project
In 2020, Partners of Scott County Watersheds adopted the Crow Creek Wildlife Management Area, an Iowa DNR-owned public area located just north of Davenport city limits. Since then, we have conducted trash cleanups, invasive species removal events, fish habitat improvement days, and are currently collaborating on a large site accessibility and improvement project!
About the Site
The 56-acre public area features a 17-acre lake that is very popular for fishing as well as paddling. The lake was a former borrow pit for the nearby highway interchange. It sports clear water and fairly deep depths. Fish species include bluegill, largemouth bass, channel catfish and crappie. It offers excellent fishing opportunity year round. Hiking trails along the south and west sides of the lake offer opportunities to exercise and enjoy watching wildlife. Habitats include forest, prairie, wetland and stream access to Crow Creek. Public hunting is allowed in the area. The creek corridor features woodland habitat. A restored prairie on the north end of the area provides opportunity to experience a tallgrass prairie and its associated wildlife. A couple of small wetlands on the area provide a unique opportunity to get close to wetland plants and wildlife.
