District-Wide Trout Stream Fishing Report
|Thunderstorms occasionally affect water clarity but most northeast Iowa streams have recently been fishing well. Early morning Trico hatches have been good - try a sparse #24 pattern for fishing a dry. Hopper and Cricket fishing has also been excellent beginning late in the morning. On cooler days, there have been consistent afternoon #18 Blue Wing Olive hatches.|
