    Jon B's Alaska trip is very enjoyable. I've been following Jon B for a couple years and have to say that it is has been Kind of neat watching him grow his YouTube channel.

    Streaming

    I'm not talking of the water type, I'm talking streaming shows to your TV via the internet. Going into the Winter downtime months, I enjoy spending early mornings watching fishing shows by streaming them to my TV. You can watch such shows by searching them on Netflix and Amazon, but those really don't offer the kind of river and stream fishing shows that I enjoy watching. By opening a YouTube account you can search and subscribe to channels that appeal to your liking's and build a viewing schedule that will keep you entertained for a couple of hours. I have subscribed to many channels, many of which are local people and friends of mine, who fish my home waters. Drew Gregory's "Hooked On Wild Waters" is one of my favorites and there is also one young man by the name of Jon B that I really enjoy watching (from Illinois, now lives in Texas) that really does a great job with his videos on his fishing/camping adventures around the country. Those are a couple of my favorites that I stream. I would like to hear of any shows that you might be streaming.

    I&M Canal springs major leak.

    That would be GREAT! Next deadline is at the end of November (e- version).
  4. From IDNR Trent Thomas..... We have scheduled Thursday, October 4th at 9:00 am at Jake Wolf Memorial Fish Hatchery to fin-clip 10,000-15,000 Smallmouth Bass that will be stocked into the Mackinaw River. I would appreciate any help you can provide. Please let me know if any Illinois Smallmouth Alliance members can make it. I will be providing pizza and drinks for lunch again this year. I think we were done between noon and 1:00 last year. Thanks, Trent Thomas ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please comment here if you would like to help out so I can pass the info on to Trent. Thanks.

    Can I legally Fish the Kish?

    Winnebago Forest Preserve had the Kish designated as a navigatable water way in the county.

    Can I legally Fish the Kish?

    I don't much care for that guy, and I never pay much attention to him. What's he gonna do? Those cement chunks never really produce much anyway. As long as you were all in your kayaks there's nothing he can say. And yes he does own both sides.

    Kish Outiing Date Change

    Glad to see a good turnout. Sorry I missed it. Maybe I'll try to toss together another Kish outing a few weeks from now. I would like to get some folks out to exercise the arms instead of the legs. 😊 Thanks to all who filled in to lead a group. Much appreciated.

    Blue Line Lure, Rockford Made

    Interesting. Officer Cox checked me for a fishing license but was mainly out enforcing the April 1 thru June 15 Catch and Release only on smallmouth bass regulation while serving as a IDNR officer before becoming a RKFDPD officer.

    Kishwaukee Paddle Fest 4

    I agree. Looks like it came up and is already going back down, and the south branch looks to be uneffected.

    Kishwaukee Paddle Fest 4

    I was too at one point. Then on the night of 7/19/18 we got a crap load of rain and my interest began to dwindle. Keeping an eye on the levels.

    Algonquin Fox River Gage

    FUNDING FOR THIS STREAMGAGE MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE AFTER 9/30/2018. IF A NEW FUNDING SOURCE IS NOT FOUND BY THEN, SOME OBSERVATIONS MAY BE DISCONTINUED. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- The annual cost is $14,400 per year. I We are working hard to find alternate sources of funds to keep the gages running. Hopefully the funding cut will be rescinded, we should know by late July. And if the cut is real, hopefully we will find an alternate source of funds. Again, thank you for your concern and input. Gary Johnson

    Isn't It Funny...

    Isn't It Funny how some people feel the need to buy a new kayak and ruin the fishing for the rest of us by bringing tons of rain and high water levels? I hope they buy a damn snow blower right before winter too.
  23. CC sent out. Sorry Mike. I was in the Sylvania Wilderness last week and have been busy with taking care of mom and my own health issues since returning. Hope the CC helps.
