For our first trout fishing trip in Iowa of 2011, Sean and I decided to try a small stream we had never fished before. Overall, we had a pretty decent day. We caught 20+ brown trout in about four or five hours. Most were in the 10 - 11" range, but we each managed one that was closer to 14". While we didn't hook up with any big trout, all of the fish in this stream seemed very healthy and acted extremely close to "wild". We were successful in catching trout on nymphs, dry flies, wet flies and streamers. And in the process, I may have found a new favorite stream within the Iowa borders.
