MASON CITY, IA – With the gorgeous weather we’re having on this year’s Fourth of July, there’s no reason to be indoors.

And some are spending their fourth on the water, fishing.

It was calm and quiet along Big Blue in Mason City, a perfect time for new anglers to give the sport a try.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says fishing reduces stress and allows folk to unwind.

And in the hub bub of what’s normally a busy holiday, Matt Nelson, a local fisherman agrees it’s a good time to get away from it all.

“First day off at work in probably a month. So I like to get out here and catch all I can,” said Nelson.

According to the DNR, 25 percent of the Iowa population counts themselves as enthusiastic anglers.
