  10. On Saturday July 24th, we will be hosting a wade fishing outing on the Apple River in the Northwest corner of our State. We meet at the Apple River State Park near Stockton, IL at 9AM. This is a beautiful stream that winds through the driftless area with high limestone bluffs and riffle, pool, run habitat. Since this stream is small, this will be RSVP. Please contact Paul Trybul 815-540-7775 to reserve your spot.
  11. I look forward to seeing you again Kevin
  12. Hello Gents..I'm re-upping:) See you at the Picnic..😎
  13. I'll definitely be there. Great group usually shows up (well 'cept for the year we lost to the pandemic) and I love the venue.
  14. We're planning on pulled pork BBQ from Spiz's new job at the Swine Cellar in Naperville. Added raffle of some gear to go with the rod membership promotion, too.
  15. They maybe native to Lake Michigan, but when I was a kid (in the 70's) nobody I knew caught them. You also could not see the bottom because there were no zebra mussels to filter. There were no gobies as a food source.
  16. Planning to attend, I will bring a snack or side dish
  17. Almost 7,800 signatures on petition so far, goal is 10,000 signatures. If you haven't signed yet please do so!
  18. We had a great time last night with our guest speakers Deanna Doohaluk and Stephen McKracken of the Conservation Foundation who helped educate us on plans by the Dupage River Salt Creek Work Group (DRSCW) to utilize over 3.2 million dollars in funding to help restore a 4.2 mile stretch of the East Branch of the Dupage River stretching from Royce Road to Weber Road. Contracts have been signed with the engineers for the project and a Project Kickoff Meeting will be held in August for public input on the project. We will announce the meeting date and location as soon as it is received. A completion date of 12/31/23 is targeted. Deanna did a great job with her power point presentation and outlining the projects already completed, such as restoration work at Oak Meadow, Blackwell Forest Preserve and Gauer Mill. They were also responsible for installing the soon to be opened fish ladder at the Falwell Dam on the DuPage. She also outlined plans for the East Branch and issues to be addressed at the upcoming kickoff meeting. The ISA looks forward to collaborating with Deanna's team on the project. We will soon be posting the recorded video of last night presentation and I urge all our members to view same. Stay tuned.......

  20. Also, here’s the link to the petition on Change.org: https://www.change.org/p/plainfield-park-district-dupage-river-access-for-everyone
  21. If tubing between 135th Street and Electric Park in Plainfield, yes.
  22. Would it be safe to assume that the hordes of tubers in summer are primarily renting them from that one tubing company?
  23. WGN story https://wgntv.com/news/feud-brewing-between-plainfield-residents-tubing-company-over-access-to-dupage-river/ Also, the DNR officers have a list of IL “navigable waterways” deemed for public use. They often refer to this list as the be-all, end-all in trespassing issues. The Dupe, among many other small local rivers we love to fish, is not on that list. I got this directly from a conservation police officer when inquiring about Indian Creek (private). https://www.ilga.gov/commission/jcar/admincode/017/01703704ZZ9996aR.html
  24. This actually made the 9pm channel 9 news last night.
  25. Signed. But hoping the tubing business, tiki hut drink vendors, etc. leave Plainfield, etc. and the Dupe goes back to being a quiet little river.
