South branch of the Kishwaukee River
Meet at the Potowatomi Forest Preserve in Kirkland, IL at 8:00AM for some wade/shore fishing.
Potowatomi Forest Preserve is located about 1/2 mile north of route 72 on Kirkland Road. The entrance is to the west just north of the water treatment plant and the Kishwaukee river. The entrance road will head straight west for 1/3 mile then turn left and we will meet at the bridge that crosses the river. There is easy shore access for the less adventurous anglers. I will lead an excursion deeper into the park for the more adventurous anglers. There is a canoe launch here but several portages downriver. This is only a recommended take out point for float trips not a safe put in. We will meet back at the bridge for lunch and to compare notes. Lunch will not be provided but there is a resturant and gas station 5 minutes away in town.
