For more information on the above Lake and Rivers call the Lake Darling Fisheries Station at (319) 694-2430.
Rainbow Trout - Good: Use worms or powerbait under a bobber or they are still hitting spinners as cold water doesn't bother the trout near as much as it does other fish.
The cold air temps and strong winds have kept most of the anglers away the last couple of days but the trout are still there.
