Map Guide to Improved Trout Waters of Minnesota and Iowa
By Dave Vetrano and Todd Hanson

Here's a sample of the detailed maps you'll find throughout this book...

As you see, this book has the same great information on trout improvement sites and public access as our Wisconsin map guide. But we've made some improvements:

  • Road names are shown in capital letters for easier readability,
  • Text sizes have been increased throughout the book,
  • Trout stream lines have been widened,
  • The red borders along streams that show easements have been widened for greater clarity, and
  • Streams are sub-grouped by county throughout the book.
We've also included a series of county-level maps that give you a better "lay of the land." These county-level maps show where trout streams are located with respect to each other...



Iowa streams
Our book has a map for every "official" trout stream in Iowa. An official Iowa trout stream is one where there is public access. In Iowa, if a private landowner owns the land along a trout stream, that landowner also owns the stream bottom. Trout fishers may not wade in or walk along such a stream without permission. That's one of the reasons why our book is so important -- you'll know just where you can fish if you don't care to go knocking on doors.

Our book includes maps for ALL official Iowa trout streams, including:
