Chicago region outing on the fox5-19-12
Posted 10 May 2012 - 10:23 PM
We had planned to fish the fox at Glenwood park Saturday 8:00am.
I stopped by to see what the water levels looked like. All i can say is No way!
For those that were there last year for the water willow planting, those plants are under water.
So either we postpone this event or move it to a different fishing hole. I was thinking Jericho with some canoes
What say you? I will await some input good or bad. So start planning.
And dont forget Sunday is Mothers Day!

Was planning on this being a wade. If the river doesnt work we could drop canoes, kayaks at a few other places?
How many people are interested in a float?

As a newbie to the ISA and a newbie to smb fishing I am happy to go along and learn from the experienced folks regardless.

1,800 - 2,000 is my top end for comfortable wading in most areas. Obviously for kayak fishing, a gentle flow is more advantageous for boat position.
I was out early this week and fishing was relatively slow. I hit some great areas with the kayak and boated a combined 9 with a buddy. The hula grub was a winner. A few on a spinnerbait. Largest were 15". I'm guessing the spawn has slowed things down a bit. But you never know what'll hit on that next cast. There are always fish on the feed of various sizes and styles...

Hula grub on the bottom got all the action for me.
