Hello and welcome to the blog! On Tuesday good friend Teresa and I took a whirlwind tour all over northeast Iowa’s most beautiful counties. Of course, I brought her home safely but with her shoes soaking wet and her wanting to return to the trout streams… But that was the plan. We gathered some fish and a LOT of pictures.
Our course was a loop, kind of shaped like a lariat. We headed to the Mississippi and followed the river road upstream to the Minnesota / Iowa / Wisconsin border. Then we drove west a county, dropped down through Decorah, and headed back east, returning home with a limit of trout and a few souveniers. Below there will be a bunch of pictures with captions.
The trip did both of us a lot of good. We had a great time and were able to see some gorgeous areas. As much fun as it is to fish alone, it’s all the more enjoyable to share the experience with a good friend, especially the two-footed kind.
So what’s next? The fall camping and trout stocking season is starting to wind down a bit. Nonetheless I’m anxious to have some more outdoor fun. Depending on the work schedule, there might be a little time to slip away to Delaware County and check out another trout stream that I never knew existed. Jenny might come along this time as we explore a different creek and cook up some belly warming grub on a chilly fall night.
Thanks for visiting. Safe and happy travels.
Brad, Jesse, and Jennifer
