    Espn had a bass tournament last week here in Iowa, The winner won 17000.00 plus in cash, and a new Triton boat, he came from Maryland, 2nd place got some money also and a new boat. The general talk is that the River has really come into it's own since the 93 flood. The fish are plentiful and of good quality. This is good news to us local folks. There was approx. 300 signups, no rooms to be had in a 30 mile radius, and a shot in the arm for the local economy. Later Andy

    ya right now it's slow, but the spawn is just about over. I went up to dam 19 yesterday and caught some small ones. Looks as if the stripers are starting to run up at the dam also. later Andy
