    Fished Friday and Saturday with a buddy. Lots of high, dirty water here, and the heat was tough on Friday, but we still found them both days.

    Very nice! I am hoping in another week or so my day trip water will look like that. I think you guys caught a lot more rain than we have the past week or two.

    The rain has been brutal on our streams for several months. Clarity is a premium in many areas. A week like this will help them immensely.

    Its really cooled down up here, felt like fall today, 70 degrees again for the last three. Maybe if it won't rain for a few days things look good for the next couple weeks.

    I know you guys get sick of my constant muddy water whining, but my closest streams have pathetically weak springs. When they get jacked up I need about 10 days of drought to correct them. This is why I like fall so much. Once the ground dries up they are more tolerant of an occasional shower. The water is down here now on the big river. That's a very good thing so we can withstand your runoff next week.

    Is it worth heading up to NE Iowa this weekend to wet a few flies or is the water still muddy? It hasn't rained in at least a day.

    Yes. Things should be in great shape. We caught and released this 22" on Sunday. Nymph rigs. Nothing fancy.

    Nice fish, and yeah OK, that makes up my mind that heading north is a good idea!

    Next question is where to go.

    If you don't mind posting it in public where in Iowa are you? You definitely need to explore the north. We have a few very good streams of course, but there is an expansive new world of cold water not too far north.

    Marion is officially home and spent a lot of time in Des Moines. I’ve fished up north in the past but it’s been a few years. On the forum I’ve really only hung out in the western region forum for some reason. Just recently found the driftless region section of the forum. Didn’t think to look before.
