Not sure what the Floyd Y is.

It was a restaurant back in the day.
I used to know some farmers in Decorah.
I believe the McGraths.
They let us pheasant hunt there.
Late 80's early 90's.
Those were some great times!

Post a trip report when you come back. Wanting to spend some time on the Upper Iowa this year. Took the family for a walk along the river last night so I could do some scouting.


May not get to post much if the weather report holds up...looks like lots of rain so probably not worth it since my final destination is the C.R area.

I think it's going to be another year where the rain keeps most warm water spots high and hard to fish. Bummer.

FWIW my report probably would have included something about how fun it was to walk around the area and forgetting how nice the small river fishing is in Iowa compared to what I have in WI, MAYBE a mention of any fish if I happened to catch anything. :)

Well if you're going to be in CR, I'd recommend fishing the Iowa River below the dam by UofI campus. Good walleye, pike, crappie, and probably smallmouth.

Thanks--hometown is in the Wapsi area 25-30 minutes north of CR so that would likely be the best option.

Wapsi's an underrated fishery when the time is right. It's probably too early for the Maquoketa so the hope is the weather holds off enough and things aren't blown out.

Haven't fished the Wapsi, but have heard good things.
