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.

So what they're saying...is that fishing might be good?

I think as long as the bar at WR&G is above water, we'll be in business. ThumpUp

Here in River Falls, we only got an inch or inch and a half. The rains went north and pounded parts of St. Croix County and hit south of here, as discussed. I haven't checked the rivers, but there should be fishable water in Pierce county this weekend. Larger rivers such as the Kinni and Rush might be touch and go because their headwaters are in St. Croix County. The smaller stuff might be good for fishing.
What was big was not the trout, but the chance. What was full was not my creel, but my memory.

Mudslides in Northeast Iowa, beginning to change stream flow on some prime streams (Sny Magill for example). Joy Springs and sections of Maquoketa are pure chocolate and full of debris. Mink and Teeple Creek near Waukon are a total mess. Cedar Rapids is going to see 24 feet downtown, a flood level second only to the floods of 2008.

AutobotT., you are pretty intrepid to go scope it out. The Cedar is rising fast from all the rain at the headwaters. It could get ugly downstream.

After the floods of 2008 familiar pools that had been stable for years were completely gone. Some new pools got scoured out where before there had only been shallow runs, but it would be hard to argue that the habitat on Iowa streams got better. The rains this year will bring changes, most of which won't be all that welcome.

Let's hope things settle down before the spawn gets underway in October.
