Dubuque Fly Fishers Activities

Public is always welcome at events

Annual Silent Auction Held at the regular meeting in January, it is a chance to support the club and get a good buy.
Spring Fishing Outing We camp in northeast Iowa at the Upper Iowa Resort and Campground, and fish for trout in several of the area streams. Some of the streams that we fish are French, Waterloo, Silver, North Bear, and South Bear Creeks. Some people come for just a day, and others spend the entire weekend. There are motels in the area if you do not wish to camp.
Casting Clinic Usually held in May at Bergfeld Ponds. Watch the newsletter or website calendar for details.
Fishing Clinic The Dubuque Fly Fishers often participate in local fishing clinics.
Albrecht Acres Fishing During the summer the Dubuque Fly Fishers take the Albrecht Acres kids fishing at their pond.
Summer Potluck Held in July or August, it is a time for fish stories and good food. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and the entire family is welcome.
Fly Swap Held at a regular meeting. Watch the newsletter for details. In addition to the swap, each participant presents information concerning the fly they entered in the swap. This is an excellent time to learn about a variety of flies and how to fish them.
Adopt-A-Stream The Dubuque Fly Fishers participates in Iowa's Adopt-A-Stream program by adopting Swiss Valley trout stream. There are generally two stream work/clean-up days per year (spring and fall).
Additional Activities Additional fishing outings that occur on a less regular basis are trips to southeast Minnesota, The Black Hills, Colorado, and Wisconsin. Club meetings include fly tying, guest speakers, DNR presentations, casting instruction, or presentations by our members. Meetings are generally informal with the opportunity to interact with other members. Visitors are welcome.
