As I remember the dam in Iowa City was the first dam on the Iowa River between Iowa City and the Mississippi river and we caught more fish there. This site was about three blocks from my laboratory and I would take my catch home on my 65cc Honda.

There were lots of carp at the Iowa City, Burlington Av, site. The carp might provide great sport and I can remember Mennonites with burlap bags of carp so full that it took two men to get them up the bank. The carp were smoked in old refrigerators with porcelain interiors and said to be a delicacy.

If there is a heaven... Smoked carp is served there... It is absolutely delicious... Similar to smoked Whitefish.. But about 100x oilier
