    District-Wide Trout Stream Fishing Report

    Brook Trout - Fair: Brookies are colored up for the spawn. Walk around freshly cleared areas in stream bottom. These are trout nests or redds. Use small flies imitating midges, minnows, or mayflies. Please respect private property open to angling. Pick up trash. Be considerate.
    All fall community trout stockings are complete. Check our website at www.iowadnr.gov/trout to find out where they were stocked. Take advantage of fishing trout streams this fall. Iowa's trout season remains open all year. Plenty of Rainbow Trout were stocked and many streams maintain excellent populations of Brown Trout. Thanks to all for taking advantage of our catchable stockings. We look forward to seeing you on the streams next year.
    Brown Trout - Fair: Avoid stepping on trout nests or redds. These are freshly cleaned areas on stream bottoms. For brownies slow to take bait, a keen eye and a fly box filled with a variety of sizes and colors makes the difference between catching and taking your pole for a walk.
    Rainbow Trout - Good: Use flies imitating midges, mayflies, and small fish. Use hair jigs, spinner baits, small shallow water crankbaits for aggressive fish. Plenty of fish remain in stream over winter.
