About Us

Welcome to We Fish Iowa!

We fish Iowa is my personal web blog.  I use it to share my days spent fishing all the Iowa has to offer.  I love to talk to people that share the same passion for fishing.  I enjoy looking back on the site as time passes.  It jars my memories of past experiences spent on the water.  I hope my 2 sons will join me in writing and sharing time with We Fish Iowa in the future.  A bit to young yet….

We fish Iowa is written by average, everyday people that live, work, and play here in Iowa.  If you would like to submit an article or wish to join We Fish Iowa as a writer please contact us via E-mail at mail@wefishiowa.com .  Also, feel free to send us comments and suggestions.  We’d love to hear them.

See you on the water!

Claim to Fame: Was on a fishing show with John Campbell. (Small mouths below the Delhi dam RIP.) Also 3 State big fish awards Flathead of 33, 43, and 47 lbs.
Words of wisdom: I love to catch big flatheads but I am not species specific. Iowa has one of the greatest diversity of fishing anywhere in the country and I am always trying to develop new tactics and learn ways of catching all types of fish. I always practice Catch Photo and Release and a great photo is a lot cheaper than a mount.
