Mill Creek in chatfield was chocolate milk yesterday afternoon (I didn't check the root). The water level looked OK. I turned around and fished a reservoir outside Rochester instead.

I fished the upper end of Trout Run yesterday above HWY 74. About 10" visibility and fairly swift. I caught fish on both olive and black jigs.

Dang! We were going to try the lower section before we turned around. Sometimes the browns in there are pretty rowdy when it's like that. The reservoir was pretty dead (I only caught a small bass on a crappie jig), but we cut out well before dusk, and the wind was laying down when we left.

A lot of the stuff north of I-94 was high and muddy after yesterday's rain. I'd advise small and shallow if you're looking to get out today.

Looks like I'll get the chance to hit NE Iowa tomorrow for a day of Brook Hunting. Any word on the creek conditions up that way? Looking for help from my Iowa brethren. Thanks!

People I've talked to said things should be fishable tomorrow. I'm planning on heading up as well

Thanks. I hope it isn't too crowded with the holiday weekend.

On Tuesday Paint Creek was too high and muddy to fish. Bloody Run was slightly off color but quite fishable, even the lower sections. Sny Magill was disgusting the last time I looked, and I think it's rained more in those watersheds since Tuesday.

The Maquoketa has been quite high, but fishable. My buddy and I picked up 40 fish in a couple of hours. I just checked the river gauge at Manchester and the Maquoketa is rising there.

A quick check of the USGS gauge at Waterloo creek showed a big spike last night, but falling quickly.

Get an early start. You may have to look a bit to find half-way clear, fishable water.
