The search has ended for a missing fisherman in northeast Iowa. A person hunting for clams in the Cedar River found the body of 31-year-old James McNally of Nashua late Tuesday morning. Officials say McNally was swept under the water just after midnight Monday morning while fishing with a friend.
McNally reportedly waded into the river just below the Nashua Dam, lost his footing, and went under the water. Authorities say McNally’s chest-high waders filled with water and pulled him down. McNally’s body was found around 11 A.M. Tuesday about a half-mile downstream from the dam. Officials say the drowning is the first in Nashua in more than 40 years.
