July 11 thru July 22, IDNR will be conducting stream samplings of the Kishwaukee River and it’s tributaries.
Contact Terry if you would like to help the IDNR team as they do this scientific study of what lurks beneath the surface.
IDNR regional director Karen Rivera and her team will be conducting stream samplings in the Kishwaukee River corridor beginning in mid-July. The team can usually use some help with these samplings in the way of netters. Netters wade behind a boat shocker that shocks and stuns fish to the surface for netting. Karen runs a tight ship and insists on hauling in the most fish possible. She does not like missed fish. The more fish taken the better the study. It’s that simple. All you need is to bring a pair of non-breathable waders (must have) if you would like to help. Breathable waders will allow the electrical current to pass through, resulting in a shock, so please be sure your waders are non-breathable. Karen and her team will supply the nets and whatever else may be needed.
