Hoping the western part of the state fared as well as we did in Sauk County recently.Monday night .2 of an inch. Tuesday night 1 inch even. Hopefully there will be more on the way through the end of the week!

A real soaker here in the Milwaukee area overnight including some lightning - which we haven't seen in awhile. The rain continues tonday and should help cut down on the wildfire threat. Hopefully stream levels in the DA will come up a bit.

Wish I could get out. Maybe in a couple of weeks.

That's an affirmative on water levels being up.

My little upstream section of creek = BLOWN wide open, but starting to settle down...

Severe t-storms/very heavy rainfall coming tomorrow.


Expect the streams round here to look a bit different come Saturday morning!

It's not raining where it counts in Iowa. Streams look like September: low and clear. Today is a little bit damp, but not enough to make a difference. I'm gonna hit a couple of streams anyway. Fishing has been tough so far this spring, but I did catch an 18" brown the first time out this year.

A couple of good soaking rains would help Iowa streams a whole lot.

2.9 inches overnight last night. Streams are out of their banks in the Sauk, Dane Columbia county areas. Looks like we may get caught up on precipitation from this winter all in one week.

West Branch, looks like your request was answered last night with the map showing 1-3" in NW IA, depending on location. Looks like a bunch more on the way for today too.

Another 1 inch at my house yesterday, with 1-3 inches thoughout the area. Accuweather has a nice 24 hour rain total map that I refer to when planning for fishing, especially when it's just a 1 night event. Here is a link to what the map looks like for the last 24 hours.

I was planning a day trip out this weekend (2-3hr drive). Does anyone have a feel for how Richland and Grant county streams are holding up? Will streams be clear enough to fish tomorrow AM? From DanE's linked ran map it looks like ~3" in the past 24hrs. Thanks in advance!
