    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.
  2. Anybody interested in this fest please PM me for more info. Camping is available on Friday night also if. Let me know if you are interested and we can try to set up a plan. Fun event with damn good music Click > https://www.facebook.com/events/177737529566031/

    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.

    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 Hopefully the funding cut will be rescinded, we should know by late July.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.
  7. 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.
  8. I like the blockheads but so far this year nothing seems to out fish the Jude Bug.

    I have never heard of any such thing. There is a cast and compare on Sept 18th I believe.

    One of my favorite beers

    That would have to come in a 20oz bottle.

    One of my favorite beers

    We have Kishwaukee Blue, a white wine, which is pretty good. I usually down a bottle in the Fall, kind of an end of the season thing I like to do. - http://www.prairiestatewinery.com/whites.html

    2018 DuPage River Sweep

    Good job men.
  16. Kind of looks like an old sewer man-hole entrance. That or a performing arts band shell that the aquatic life might be using. Similar things have been done in the past.....

    Webcast Show

    Josh Glovinsky, who donates a guided trip to the Bronzeback Blowout, also produces a webcast show called Midwest Fish Finder. This year Josh said he would donate the trip as long as I would agree to be a guest on his show. Here's the result when you find the time....

    Congrats on your very first smallmouth! Your arms will forever ache for that bump of a smallmouth bite. Welcome.
  20. Please! I knew you were going to fish that section before you did. Not sure why you didn't have your 70+ year old dad use "The Force" to get that canoe up the hill. Glad to hear that Jude and Mike are alright.
  21. Such a large group. This might help.... The orange (Appleton to Cherry Valley) area is an all day (6 - 8 hours) trip and could have some down falls to portage from last weeks wind storm. The green (Cherry Valley to Kish F.P.) area half day (4 - 6 hours) and is the most used route The purple area (Oak Ridge to Kish F.P.) is a half day (4 - 6 hours). This is the south branch flowing into the main branch, and is about the same distance as the green area. Could have down falls to portage. The blue area (Kish F.P. to Atwood) has slower moving water, islands to beach and wade and may take just a little bit longer than the green area to fish. 3/4 day trip, 4 - 7 hours. Note: the canoe launch at Atwood is kind of a steep drop. Careful as you get out. The red area (Atwood to Hinchliff F.P.) slower moving water, a tad deeper than the average, connects to the Rock. Note: the canoe launch at Atwood is kind of a steep drop. Careful as you get in. The bad thing...... There is quite a bit of a hill at the take out to carry your boat up to the parking lot. You boys have fun. I wish I could take part. Maybe I'll try to slip in for breakfast.
  22. I will not be able to make this event. You boys have fun and catch a lot of smallies. Calendar seems to be working good whether or logged in or not. Thanks, Scott.
