  1. I talked to the guy who runs the resort/motel we stay at and as of yesterday he had one small remaining pile of snow. He is right on the border in Lac view desert. two people I talked to said fishing has been very slow.
  2. Thanks for the heads up on PSC. I would like to improve my canoeing skills.
  3. Cool. I'll just buy a Michigan annual for Sylvania then.
  4. Did someone say a Michigan license is all we need?
  5. Keep an eye out Sierra Trading Post also.
  6. This was in the news today. At least on public radio. https://www.chicagoriver.org/blog/2019/4/mill-creek-southwest-suburban-project-fixes-100-year-old-mistake This is a very pretty little creek and I've seen bass boats in the Cal Sag channel. I presume there are bass in there. I've fished this creek with my kids when they were little but all we caught were creek chubs. On the radio today they talked about hooking up to Tinley Creek also.
  7. Here is a list of the DNR cops by county. Just call and ask. https://www.dnr.illinois.gov/LawEnforcement/Documents/DistrictCPOPhonesAndEmails.pdf
  8. See this thread. Where I actually called a DNR cop assigned to the area in question.
  9. if the landowner owns both sides of the bank they own the stream bed below, and yes you are trespassing even if in a boat. Not in theory you are trespassing. I believe that bridges are considered easements, but parking next to it might be private.

  11. If you want to meet me at Rock Run you can take mine for a spin. You won’t need lessons.
  12. Wow, that's pretty cool. Sounds like fun. I'll try to catch their lecture next time. I was at Starved Rock last year, I started talking to a guy there at the visitor center who wrote this book: https://www.amazon.com/Massacre-1769-Starved-William-Publication/dp/0615834671 He was saying that these war parties would come all the way from around Appleton down the Fox river, because the Prairie grass would be too tall to do it on foot. paddling downstream would be one thing, but I was thinking, holy cow that would mean paddling upstream to get home.
  13. Thanks for taking the time to sign in and respond Wade. If you ever find yourself in headed to the Windy City or Illinois, please give us a shout.
  14. This guy sells a nifty jig for cutting popper heads uniformly. His videos are super detailed on how to construct a popper.
