Iowa Guiding

I was over in Northeast Iowa this past friday and saturday for some fun fishing and a guide trip. The fishing was very good. Friday was a little chilly but that didn't stop the fish from eating. Nymphing in the morning and in the afternoon some fish on dries.

Brown fell for the Pink Squirrel.

Best brown of the day on friday.

 Saturday was guiding and I could only hope the fishing would remain good. I got my anwser on one of the guys first cast. Pulled a nice brown in. That set the tone for the rest of the day. In the afternoon we encountered a olive hatch and had surface feeding fish in every run.

  1. Nick, thanks for the trip!!! Your expertise and skills did all of us well. We had a blast fishing with your guidance and patience, wish the day lasted just a bit longer. I look like a junkie in that those pictures! The days after you left were just phenomenal!!! Each one of us had a big fish on just couldn't land them! We finished our trip on Big Paint.

    This is my biggest. I have no clue what I caught it on-like always (all i know is it was a nymph).


    Here is another that came out of the same hole.

    Thanks again Nick, hope to see you real soon! If your ever in the area and need a fishing partner let us know!!!
