Re: winter trout fishing
Chefdg - The driftless area is in the far NE corner of Iowa. My best guess is that you're 3 1/2 to 4 hours away from it. Decorah, IA would be one of the bigger cities that falls into the "Driftless" section of the state.
Casey - Send me a pm with any specific questions you might have about the area or tactics. I'll offer up what I know.
