I would have expected the water to be low and the fish very spooky by July but it is not so.  The water level and fly fishing in our Northeast Iowa streams is perfect.  We have had a few hot days which made for some hard afternoon fishing but that was easily forgotten by successful mornings.

The 4th of July weekend was a perfect time to be on the water.  To my surprise the water was not crowded.  By Monday morning, Art and I had the stream to ourselves and we took advantage of it.  We saw caddis and mayflies all morning but the fish were not rising to them so we fished soft hackels and pheasant tails with no bead.  This proved to be successful.

If you have not gotten out on the water this summer, now is the time.  If you are new to the area and not sure where to go, or are new to the sport of fly fishing, you can book a trip with us and we can help you get started.

Thanks again Art.
