Any of you fish the Iowa River in/around Marshalltown? I've been here about 4 years and I'm just now trying to figure out how to fish the river. I've heard that three bridges park near Legrand is a good place to fish, but I've been hitting the river here in town without much luck. It appears as if the river above the Veterans home was ruined back in the day when they straightened the channels :angry:, so I've concentrated my efforts down stream from there. Set up on an outside bend of the river near some snags....but got nothin after about half a dozen outings. I've tried livers, crawlers, live chubs, dead shad....but got nothin. Closest I've come was last night on a dead shad. Bait clicker started makin' noise as something picked up the bait and started to move with it :big_smile:....but then it stopped and that was all for the rest of the night:sad2:. I've got a flat bottom that I plan to float down river next summer and try to map out some good holes and mark with my GPS. At any rate, not much action on this Iowa thread. Wanted to try to spur some conversation and maybe get some advice on how you fish the Iowa.
