Dave Jones Posted April 12, 2010 Report Share Posted April 12, 2010 We had a very good Quad City chapter meeting Sunday evening April 11. About 40 people attended. About 25 were members from the Hawkeye Fly Fishing club. 15 were existing or prospective ISA members. Signed up three new members, (applications and checks are in the mail). Karen Rivera, Illinois DNR, spoke for 45 minutes regarding the surveys last summer on the Middle Mississippi Tributaries and Green River watershed. Karen also reviewed the 2008 Rock River smallmouth bass survey. Karen also spoke a bit about the 2009 fish kill on the Rock River. Mike Jacobs demonstrated tying a new smallmouth fly. Meeting lasted about two hours. We plan to have several joint meetings each year to jointly recruit new presenters. The Hawkeye Fly Fishing club was a most gracious host and good to work with. Next winter we will try to schedule several fly tying meetings with the Hawkeye Fly Fishing club to focus on SMB flies. Prior to our meeting Dave Jones, Ron Price and Matt Schroeder fished the Duck Creek tributary for several hours. A handful of SMB were caught, the largest being 16 1/2 inches by Ron.
