    Know anything about the stretch between Iowa River Power and the dam downtown? Is that a good stretch, or anywhere to put in on that stretch?  Well, be targeting Walleye and Bass. I’ve never fished Iowa River, how is the Bass fishing?

    I use a 5wt 9ft rod and Gill fish at my local pond. It is an absolute blast!!! Pink Squirrel fly is where it’s at. That fly is dynamite on blugill 😀

    Fountain Springs in Greeley. Think its technically called Holbert Park or something. Streamside camping, secluded, primitive, quiet, trout fishing and public hunting. No cell service which is awesome! Also the no electric/no water means no kids or geriatrics so if the fishings slow you can knock a few back and play bags or horseshoes and enjoy the boombox without consequence. Lots of shade so even when its real hot it doesnt feel like it.

    Also i like River Junction for the fact that Ic to Riverside and Hills to Riverside is a nice float and you can end directly at your tent with no shuttling. Plus ive never seen it full and ive camped there for 2 or 3 4th of July weekends and a couple Memorial Days.

    I tend to shy away from any “real campgrounds” haha.

    Where do you go to get info about River Junction? I noticed you mentioned float and I have been looking for places to float in the IC area. Can you rent tubes or do you have to bring your own? Where do you drop in to start float? Also, is the camping pay when you get there type of place or require reservations?

    Thanks

    X2 on Pink Squirrels. Those things work on everything. I’ve caught Trout, Crappie, Bass, and Gills on that fly alone. I’m a casual Fly fisherman, enjoy mixing it up once in a while and fly fish. When I do fly fish, 95% of the time I’m using a Pink Squirrel.

    Love to get a Yeti, but my cheapo Coleman with ice and a 1 gallon frozen milk jug at the bottom will hold ice for 3 days. Works for me… 😀
