I remember a thread long ago, that blue car didn't just didn't exist in the Missouri River in the Iowa stretch. This is from the DNR fishing report this week.
"Missouri River (Sioux City to Little Sioux)
Flathead Catfish - Good: Use rod and reel and trotlines with live bait off the tips of wing dikes and rock structures. Evening or after dark is best. Blue Catfish - Good: Use fresh cut bait fished off the bottom in or near the current. Channel Catfish - Good: Use worms, chicken livers, cutb ait and dip baits near wing dams, brush piles and along the rock revetment. " DNR fishing report 13 July 2017.


Yes, caramel corn is a veggie.

No kidding. I catch them just as frequently as Channels and Flatties out of the big Muddy. You can find them in any tributary until the first point of resistance in the interior rivers (Big Sioux, Little Sioux, Boyer and the Nish).

how far do they run up the Mighty Miss?

I don't think we have them here in Dubuque, although they have some monster Blues on display at the River Museum

From my understanding, Blues are almost non-existent on the Mississippi in Iowa. Supposedly, the population really starts to drop off above St. Louis.

They are definitely in Iowa on the Mississippi river. There was a catfish tourney in Canton, MO in June where the big fish was a 40# blue. Several others in the 10-25# range.
