October is here!

Rain, rain go away! Persistent rain showers keep visiting us in the Driftless area. Streams remain high but clear to cloudy. Silver and gold bead head nymphs are working great! Also, soft hackles below a bead head is a great combo. There also has been sporadic dry fly action using a gnat pattern. Remember, Iowa is open year-round for trout fishing so come and visit us! Tight lines!

Inspire(d) Fall 2018!

Liz was featured in the Inspire(d) magazine for Fall 2018! Inspire(d) is a Driftless magazine with positive news from the Driftless Region. The article is titled “Fly Fishing for the Win!” by Aryn Henning Nichols. You’ve got to read this inspiring article about fly fishing and women!

September in the Driftless

A high pressure system has been keeping the Iowa Driftless down right gorgeous these last few days. Humidity creeps up this weekend but stream conditions are in excellent shape! Hopper patterns (brown and yellow) are working great as are the wide and varied selection of nymphs….my favorite nymph being the JBJ (personal creation). Message me and I’ll send you the recipe! Tight lines this coming weekend!
