It was only a dry spring in certain parts of the state not state wide. Most of west, west central and southwest iowa had a bunch of rain and cool temps this spring. The prelimary reports are to expect overall numbers to be close to last year. The are saying a swath fom nw to se should be good. However that was before the monsons of this week set in. I live in central part of the state and after tonite we will have had in excess of 10 inches since sunday with heavier amounts to the north. We are going to need an extended dry period or it will be a mess this fall trying to get what crops are left out of the fields.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
