Where We Fish

​​I like to tailor trips to each individual client! You can expect a walking and wading adventure along coldwater streams. Walking distances are about a half to a full mile (down and back) for a half day of fly fishing. Clients have the option to wear waders or wet wade, depending on the time of year. Comfy footwear is a must! No stilettos ladies!

Winneshiek County coldwater stream.

Most streams are located in Winneshiek and Allamakee Counties and offer excellent days of fly fishing. Stream depths vary as does the number of stream crossings. Most of the stream crossings you will experience water levels below the knee.

More information on trout streams can be found at the Iowa DNR website.
