Northeast Iowa's Restored Trout Streams

August 21, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

Iowans and Trout Unlimited are working to return portions of the state to their pre-agricultural glory. “John van Vliet and I fished in one of the most ambitious restoration areas, the 98-acre Prairie Song Farm. Mike Osterholm, with help from federal and state agencies, Trout Unlimited and other groups, is seeking to restore the area to the prairie grass and oak savannah vegetation that greeted the first settlers in the 1830’s.” Adam Clymer in The New York Times.
