Conditions : Iowa River: (above Decorah) The Upper Iowa is stable but low. Be prepared to walk through riffles. Fly fishers, watch for evening hatches of white and grey mayflies. Flying ants are hatching mid-day. Fall is a good time to use streamers or minnow patterns for bass, trout, and walleye. Walleye - Slow: Drift through a deeper hole or along a current break. Use a jig tipped with a twister tail or worm. Smallmouth Bass - Fair: Try jigs tipped with worms or crankbaits imitating crawdads in deeper holes and along rocky shorelines. Rock Bass - Fair: Use jigs tipped with worms along rocky shorelines.

(below Decorah) Water temperatures are in the low 70's. Northern Pike - Slow: Use a steel leader tipped with 1/4 oz. jig tipped with natural colored plastic to a 3 inch jerk bait fished around tributaries or brush piles. Smallmouth Bass - Slow: Use jigs tipped with plastic tails in the current breaks or near rock ledges. Walleye - Slow: Drift a jig tipped with a twister tail or worm through a deeper hole or along a current break. Channel Catfish - Slow: Catch a catfish from shore with a hook tipped with a crawler. Evening is best.
