Well like allot people in Jasper and Newton Counties I have lived near the Iroquois River all my life. Over the last 48 years I have spent allot of time on the river. As young kids the river was our playground and for me it still is. Old and married I go down by the Iroquois allot most of time fishing. But over the last few years i have seen a decline in the fish and wildlife all long the Iroquois River.

The Iroquois River is being poisoned by everything from giant livestock operations all over Jasper and Newton counties to people manufacturing methamphetamines all long the rivers banks.

I think with this Group and Facebook keeping a eye out on the river and communicating what you see and hear while fishing at Lairds Landing or suspicious vehicles parked by a bridge. Post it here!!
