2016 Iowa Trout Survey
Every five years, the Iowa DNR selects 10,000 trout privilege purchasers to participate in a survey regarding our trout program, to assess opinions on what we are currently doing, and to plan for our future work. If you received one of our invitation post cards, and because of your interest in trout fishing in Iowa, the Department of Natural Resources would greatly appreciate your participation in our Internet survey. Your feedback will help guide trout fishing management in Iowa to provide the best quality fishing for you. Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary and will be kept confidential. No purchase or consideration is necessary to participate. Only a portion of trout anglers were randomly selected for this survey so your response is extremely valuable because it represents that of many trout anglers in your area. By completing the survey online, you greatly reduce our survey costs.
