Authorities say a fisherman died after falling from his boat on the Cedar River in Charles City.

The Iowa Natural Resources Department says the man had anchored just above a dam when he fell out and went over the dam shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday. The department says he was pulled from the river downstream and taken to Floyd County Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

His name hasn't been released.
