Spent the weekend up in Allamakee County with Uncle Nate. We were in search of clear streams and willing fish. Thankfully there are a couple streams in Iowa that will stay pretty clean with almost any amount of rain.
This small stream was loaded with small brook trout. I'd like to see the beaver dams knocked out so the flow would improve.
The brown above was the fish of the trip caught on a challenging stream that has no stocking - all natural population of browns.
No bulls in the pasture above. That's always a plus.
