I contacted Rod with very specific
requests for a fly fishing trip in Northeast
Iowa. We settled on a date in late March,

experience fishing narrow streams. I
thoroughly enjoyed my day with Rod and
can highly recommend him as a first class
fly fishing guide. I will use his guide

hundred spring-fed coldwater streams that have the temperature. the chemistry and the aquatic
insect base to support trout. Yes you can catch trout in Iowa!!! Let CWGS show you where and

"Ours is the grandest
sport. It is an intriguing
battle of wits between an
angler and a trout; and in
addition to appreciating
the tradition and grace of
the game, we play it in the
