Recommended Posts

Guide Mike Allen to Speak on "Illinois Fly Fishing for Smallmouth Bass" at Oak Brook Trout Unlimited Meeting, May 16 at 7 p.m.


Guide Mike Allen of Midwest Waters Angling will speak on "Fly Fishing for Smallmouth Bass in the greater Chicago and Northern Illinois Area" which will include the Kankakee, Fox, Des Plaines, DuPage Illinois and Rock Rivers at 7 p.m. at the Oak Brook Recreation Center Central Park West Building.  The meeting is open to the public. There is no admission.


Growing up in Illinois, the DuPage River Fly Tying Club became a mainstay in Mike's fishing and fly tying, and he has remained closely involved for the past 20 years. Mike now makes his home in the Fox River Valley. His home waters of the Fox and DuPage Rivers are two of the many watersheds in northern Illinois that he has come to learn and love.

Mike has fished these rivers extensively over the years, and looks forward to sharing all of these truly special waters with you. Mike enjoys all kinds of fishing, but specializes in warm water fly fishing for native smallmouth bass, carp, and pike.
