    Does anyone live around the Cedar Rapids area and fish the Wapsi? I just moved close to the river and would like to give it a try. I am close to the Waubeek/Central City area.
    Thanks

    I would like to know about the Matsell Bridge area as well.

    The Wapsi is known to be a good catfish, walleye and smallmouth river. I've been told that it isn't a very good flathead water till you get below the first dam which might be a little above hwy 30. Very low and shallow in mid summer with a few deep holes. Very snag infested and below that bridge you asked about very rocky and hard to navigate a boat in summer.
