    Eagle watching - if you look carefully, you'll be able to spot the eagle in flight.
    The eagles come to the dam to fish as it is often the only open water on the river in the depth of winter.

    Canoe on the Little Sioux River from Sioux Rapids to Linn Grove (4 to 5 hours) or from Linn Grove to Peterson (6 to 8 hours).
    Early morning hours from daylight to 8:30 is the best time for seeing wildlife. Many birds, including gray herons and waterfowl on the river. If you're lucky, you may see a river otter or an eagle. Fine way to find a good fishing hole for catfish downstream. The later in the summer it is, the more likely that you will have to portage the canoe, but it is usually not a problem. It is a beautiful and peaceful way to spend a summer day and except on holiday weekends, it is unlikely that you will meet others on the river.

    Sometimes the river floods! This is a
    hundred-year-flood from Summer 1993. Also at risk for very hot or very cold weather, and it can change very quickly! After all, this is Iowa. One good thing is that there are no poisonous snakes or scorpions in this part of NW Iowa, but I hear that prairie rattlesnakes are making a comeback a little further north. Mountain lion tracks have been confirmed in adjacent Cherokee County.

    Late afternoon is the best time to spot the wild turkeys on the edge of the woods in the countryside surrounding Linn Grove.

    Bluebird Creek to the north of Linn Grove. Sioux Valley 2nd grade students of Mrs. Diane Noll of Linn Grove named the creek in honor of the bluebirds that nest in the open areas along its banks.

    Favorite thing: Go Eagle Watching at the Linn Grove Dam. This eagle photo was taken from the Little Sioux River Bridge on a snowy day.
