    Wow, there hasn’t been a post in here since Iowa State Fair time and now we are 2 weeks from Thanksgiving.

    The fishing never really seemed to recover for me from this springs rain, but has anyone given BC a shot lately? Surely someone is out there?

    Tried it last week and no luck. Has anyone tried below the dam I would think the walleyes would start to hit soon.

    You mean the Big Creek spillway into Saylorville? I have seen people fishing there but I did not see anything caught. I spent about 30 minutes there 2 weeks ago with no results.

    I was talking about the dam where sailorville empties into the des monies river. I’m off tomorrow so I think I might try some pheasant hunting around Polk City on the public ground and then maybe try fishing the river below the dam on the way home.

    thanks Dave, maybe I will see you down there. I’ll probably go in the late afternoon and will have red cyclones hat on. If I don’t see you let me know how you did.

    Hi Scott,

    It was great to see you at the Spillway. Sorry I couldnt stop and talk…. I was running late for dinner

    Did you fish at all? The bite didnt last long, if you blinked… you missed it. Jim and I both got hybrids and the guy down from Jim took home a nice eater walleye.

    HA! I just called the marina to have the boat winterized so my surrender is official…

    I hope to see you on the BC ice this winter!
