No rain forecast for weekend. Temperatures mid 80s for highs to low 60s for lows. Most area rivers and streams rose about a foot or two but remain low with fish concentrated in the pockets. This rise is bringing fresh inputs to those fish spurring on a feeding frenzy and push to find a fresh refuge. For current fishing information, please contact the Chuck Gipp Decorah Fish Hatchery at 563-382-8324.

Volga Lake watershed received about 4 inches of rain yesterday. The lake is very turbid.
