    I’m in NE Iowa and am missing out on lots of early Fall smallmouth action because every stream is completely blown out with little end in sight for a at least a week and half if we’re lucky.

    I know in years past that the smallies head out of the smaller creeks and rivers sometime in October and are done with for the year.

    So will these flood waters speed up the process? What do you guys think?

    BTW the Mississippi is forecast to hit 18 ft. at the railroad bridge within the next week! That poor river is pretty sorry looking right now and was even smelly when I went over by the dam the other day. Haven’t seen the Miss smelly since the toxic days of the late ’60s and early ’70s.
