It was a full weekend for Northeast Iowa Fly Fishing.  We were on the water Saturday – Monday and the water was perfect.  This was a great weekend for fly fishing trout in Northeast Iowa.  The weather had temps in the lower 70’s and mostly sunny all weekend.

The water was flowing well and was crystal clear.  It had been a week or so since we had gotten a good rain in Northeast Iowa.  That changed today so we will see how the water looks this weekend.

Saturday was a little cooler (lower 70s) so we saw a lot of fish rising and taking drys (Adams size 18).  They were also very active under the surface and that is where we had the most success.

Sunday was a full day of nymphing.  We had great luck on the Beadhead Pheasant Tail, Prince and Black Copper Johns (size 18-20).

Overall it was a fun weekend and everyone had success.  We strive to help beginning fly fishers as well as experienced ones learn about fly fishing Northeast Iowa.  We hope you all enjoyed your trips.  We enjoyed fly fishing with you.

Thanks, Mark; Heidi and Cara; Mike, Mitch and Mason.
