Iowa B.A.S.S. Nation
A grassroots Bass Tournament organization holding tournaments in all corners of Iowa. We have great fisheries that hold largemouth and smallmouth bass from the Upper Mississippi River to West Okoboji and down to Lake Rathbun. Iowa BASS Nation hosts dozens of local clubs throughout the state ready for you to join them.
Join Iowa BASS Nation and fish either the State Tournaments or the Team Trail Tournaments you too could advance to the regional and national tournament levels and possibly advance to the big stage in the Bassmasters Classic.
Pending permit approvals, below is the 2023 tournament schedule for the Iowa Bass Nation and Team Trail events. Mark your calendars.
IA Bass Seminar
Iowa Bass Nation is sponsoring a presentation on Large Mouth bass movements on the upper Mississippi River. Iowa DNR Biologist, Scott Gritter will be present with this study.

Asking all to donate $5.00 and this donation will be presented to Friends of Pool 9, for conservation projects.
