District-Wide Trout Stream Fishing Report
|Be prepared to park along roads to get to your favorite stream as many parking accesses are blocked with mounds of snow. Use caution when parking as road width is very deceiving. Better northeast Iowa streams have open clear water and trout have been taken on streamers, wet flies and nymphs. Surprisingly, winter midge hatches have been heavy and trout can sometimes be taken on dry flies when rising. Small Threadwraps (#18-#24) are effective early in the afternoon.|
|Brown Trout - Slow: Sny Magill, Bloody Run, Grannis and Little Paint should be fishable. Mink, Otter and Glovers are completely ice covered. |
