District-Wide Trout Stream Fishing Report
|#18 Blue Wing Olives are hatching nearly every afternoon on better northeast Iowa streams. #12 Cricket patterns have been extremely effective for larger browns and rainbows. GRHEs, Princes and Zebra Midges have all been effective nymph patterns. Brown and brook trout are presently on the spawning beds. Please fish from the stream banks or wade very carefully whenever possible so as not to disturb critical nesting activity.|
|Brook Trout - Good: Brook trout can be seen building nests to lay their eggs.|
|Brown Trout - Good: Take time to observe spawning trout activity around the cleared off areas in the stream bottom. Anglers might see territorial behavior in males.|
|Rainbow Trout - Good: Rainbows can be found sitting in faster water. If the weather doesn't slow the hatch, bows can be aggressive on a dry fly.|
