Caught my first tiger last Sunday on my favorite Iowa stream.

I'll upload a picture later.

Tiger trout have been turning up more often in Iowa streams. This gives us some hope that brookies are spawning successfully in places where they have been absent for very long time. Last year a friend showed me a picture of a tiger he pulled out of the Volga River, which isn't considered trout water by the DNR.

Bill Kalishek, now retired from his fisheries biologist job with the DNR, told me a couple of years back that we are in a period that we may someday remember as the "good old days" of Iowa trout fishing. Let's hope we can keep improving our streams and increasing public access.

Congrats on the tiger.
