My wife and I may be coming up to Ames for the next few summers for her to work on her PhD at ISU. Is there any decent fishing around Ames?

What are you fishing for?

Farm Ponds are great, Lake Rathbun has some nice Walleye's and Bass.

Farm ponds would be good, if I can make connections. I fish for anything, but I fish with a fly rod. Wading, float tubing, or canoeing opportunities are best, as I don't have a boat with a motor.

I can hook you up with most anything but Trout.........and thats in NE Iowa.

Farm Ponds are your best bet, but alot of good small lakes within an hour if you have a boat.

Excellent. Sounds like fishing won't be a problem. I can allow my wife to continue with her enrollment, now. ;)

If you're nice.........I might even drag my boat somewhere for a day.

If you're a dick..........I'll let you watch from the shore.

If your in Ames, just ask around at the place that your staying at.
If not, just start hitting the road and pull into a drive way and ask the
land owner. Maybe your wife can ask around at her classes. I would think during a break she could ask some folks in conversation around the
"vendo land"...

I figured if I was a dick you'd let me swim in from the middle of the lake;)

ISU has some farms that I"m sure have ponds, there are conservation areas.......Saylorville, RedRock, 12 mile, 3 mile, LittleRiver lakes are all within an hour-11/2.........not to mention county conservation areas.

Bring this back to my attention when you're in the area, and I'll see what we can do.
