Just registered inch #4 here. NO sign of stopping.

My (usually) little creek has bypassed the culvert, taken out the barbed wire fence, and is flowing over the road. I was lucky to get home from work tonight.

Very bad & getting worse fast...

And this is on top of the 3-5" the region has already absorbed. Looks like a good weekend to stay home and tie flies and watch football.

In north central and north east Iowa, multiple rivers are forecast to surpass their flood stages from 1993. By Tuesday, we could see significant rural and urban flooding on the Cedar, Turkey, Volga and Yellow Paint rivers. This has gone from bad trout weather to permanently changing lives kind of sh*t. We aren't even 10 years on from the 2008 floods. I don't know what to say.

The report from the Driftless Angler Fly Shop pretty much says it all:


September 22nd Fishing Report

Posted September 22, 2016

DO NOT GO OUT! Numerous bridges were wiped out, roads are closed and crews are out trying to manage everything. Major flash flooding area wide. DO NOT GO OUT! Showers and thunderstorms, mainly before noon. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. High near 75. South wind 5 to 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New rainfall amounts between three quarters and one inch possible. Way too much rain in the past 48 hours. Looks like we had 5-8 inches overall in just the past 24 hours. And, we are supposed to get a bit more. Creeks are unfishable, there are many small bridges that were flooded out, and they even cancelled school today because of the rains last night.
