Davenport Area Fishing

2 posts in this topic

I am an avid fisherman from northern Minnesota and have been spoiled with all the area lakes. I just took a job as a teacher and track coach at Durant High School, I am new to the area don’t know where to start looking for fish. I would appreciate any fishing spots in the area and species to fish for.

Thanks for all the help

Toad,

I am from North Central Iowa so I can't help you out on specifics on lakes in that area, but I think McBride and Coralville are somewhat close, but then again I really don't know where Durant is exactly, I think west of the Quad Cities. If so, you do have the ol' Mississippi.

Your first stop as you cross the border is to stop at WalMart and buy the Sportsmans Atlas. It has in it all the Public hunting area and parks owned by the DNR and the County Conservation Boards. In the park descriptions it will tell you if there is fishing. The secind item you need to buy there is a book on the lake maps in the state of Iowa. I don't know if you can buy it at Cabelas or not. The third spot is to go to the Iowa DNR HSOforum and they have most lake maps on the HSOforum as well as info about the lake.

Hope this helps.

    • The Clinton camp might have thought twice before parading the former beauty queen out to show how bad he is to women considering the extensive list if women her husband has had his fun with over the years. I am surprised that the Republicans haven't made them more if an issue but I suppose they didn't want her to play the victim card but at this point I think they have to take off the gloves and throw it out there.
    • Is that all I'm good for?!         I know the answer is yes....
    • Thanks Lip Ripper, I've looked at a couple of your builds on this page and I never would have noticed that! I've never seen a fish house in my area as the closest lake safe to drive on in the winter is an hour and a half away, so I definitely appreciate all the help I can get from the experts!!!  
    • A teleprompter really helps to not make people look stupid.
    • Team Europe had a chance last night. Leading late into the 3rd and the wheels come off. Even with a PP with under 2 minutes left to play they give up a short handed goal!? Tough one, but Canada is certainly the better team. Glad its over so we can get our players all back with the wild, but I did enjoy the tourney even though the US was terrible.
    • That would have been a fine answer.   Unfortunately instead he sat there with his mouth hanging open (figuratively) and looked like a total dolt.   This is the second time he has handled something in an interview poorly.  I guess he feels he needs the exposure but unfortunately he is not especially good at the interview thing.   At the very least he needs to practice deflecting the question.  Perhaps the "nobody especially" but "I prefer to look to American leaders of the past like (Calvin Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, William Calhoun, whoever he wants)"  He can't just sit there and and look stupid, which is what he did.    Maybe some role playing in preparation would have helped.   He can't be as ignorant and inept as he has come across in TV interviews.
