Re: Trout fishing around Decorah
I went to a local pond this morning and caught a 1 lb. largemouth and a couple of redbreast about the size of a hand. I just finished watching "A River Runs Through It" for the 50th time I believe and decided to check my email before heading off to bed. Reading your post was such a pleasant way to end my day.
Being raised in the South I am use to competing with cows and an occasional bull for wading rights. Mostly I fish from a canoe.
I agree with you about Eastern fly fishing. Competing for wading rights is almost like competing with cattle, especially on the weekends.
I am planning on go to Decorah the next time my wife goes up. I can teach 3 of my classes online, give the other 2 classes outside assignments and take a week of sick leave. That will put me up there during the week. I have printed out some area maps so I thought I would ride and do some door knocking to get permission from the land owners to fish. Definitely find a bait shop for local information.
Thanks again for you reply. Great information and good reading.
