After reading a few reports & looking at USGS, I ran down to Wilmington to grab some dinner at Hayden's pub and check out the river. It was pretty awesome to see 38,000 cfs. Lot of people fishing on the north island where carp & cat were easy pickens, also watched a couple of guys with bows looking for what may be surfacing in the grass areas. South island was closed due to flooding, river not really out of its banks just lots of flooded low areas, dam was nearly level, not much drop to be seen. Lots of big items floating down river even saw a cow on a roof (name that movie) ?

Anyone using the rivers this week has to watch the gauges and use common sense. There have been four rescues on the Du Page River the last two days. One guy set off in an inflatable canoe without a life jacket and was rescued hanging from a tree. Another couple went for a float with their dog and ended up in the river. Two other incidents involved young people. Flood stage is not an ideal time to seek out some exciting whitewater.
