About: - Twelve Mile Lake is one of Iowa's top bluegill, crappie and largemouth bass fisheries.  The 600 acre lake is also known for a quality walleye and channel catfish fishery. Numerous fishing tournaments are held at the lake each year.

Rock piles were placed in the lake during construction and many trees left standing in the lake basin results in excellent fish habitat.  Fishing jetties constructed around the lake provides for improved shoreline fishing opportunities.  Anglers fishing for extended periods can camp at nearby Green Valley State Park or at the Three Mile Lake campgrounds.  Motels are also available in Creston.
