Ames Anglers
Central Iowa Anglers; learning, teaching, talking.

Our program this Friday, August 26th, will be a presentation on the Jordan Wildlife Acres project just south of Ames. The presentation will be given by Greg Vitale of Outdoor Alliance of Story County. He will discuss the project and efforts to turn ownership over to Story County Conservation. The presentation will be at 7 AM this Friday in our regular meeting room in the CPMI Building at 2321 North loop Drive in the ISU Research Park. See you there!
The outing to Red Rock yesterday, Tuesday, August 23rd, was a success. Good weather and plenty of fish caught. Hopefully we can have another day outing this fall. Watch for details.
 Member Daryl Strohbehn is putting together plans for a fall walleye fishing trip to Lake Minnitaki which is just south of Sioux Lookout, ON. The dates are September 9-17, 2016. If interested contact Stro about details. His E-mail is 
Jim Trow has changed the dates for the ice fishing outing to Webster, SD in early January of 2017. The new dates are to leave Ames Monday, January 2, fish Tuesday and Wednesday, January 3 and 4 and return to Ames Thursday, January 5th. He has reserved the lodge at Boomers Outback that sleeps 15. It has 15 beds, 4 bathrooms and a gathering place on the main floor. The cost will be $27.79 per person at full occupancy. The cost of the guided daily trip on the ice is $150 per day per person. They pick you up at the lodge, set you up in a portable ice shelter with all equipment provided and will clean your fish at the end of the day. If you are not catching fish in 20-30 minutes they will move you to a new location. If you previously signed up for the trip just let me at or Jim Trow at know if the new dates are OK. If you haven't signed up and wish to go let us know and we will see if we can fit you in. 
If you are fishing anywhere please note your success or failures in the Forums section or on your Blog page. Doing this will help fellow anglers choose productive fishing destinations.
 Anglers meet every Friday morning for breakfast at Hy Vee Central (L way and Grand in Ames) between 7:30 and 8 AM. If we have a regular meeting at 7 AM we will then meet at around 8:15 -8:30 AM. Come join us for some fish stories and bring along a few of your own.
