Cedar Creek Shocking

Recommended Posts

I was able to help with the shocking of Cedar Creek, a tributary of the Pecatonica, this Thursday for a couple of hours. Met the esteemed Tim Smith. We manned the large dip nets and collected the stunned fish behind the shocking rods carried upstream by the gents from the IDNR. Gathered a fair quantity of suckers, shiners, creek chubs, dace, stonerollers and a couple of other species I can't remember. No smallmouth--but Cedar Creek was pretty. Here are some photos taken with the phone camera. GP

Thanks for helping out, Gordon!


"....the esteemed Tim Smith." I wonder if he's related to our Tim Smith?


I hear that esteemed Tim Smith guy is a real SOB.


Here are some of the fish we collected.





The 2nd stream we sampled was an interesting clay and rip-rapped affair in a corn field. Still no smallmouth but...


...we did find a wild-hatched brown trout. :huh:


It was great to meet Gordon and fraternize a bit with the IDNR stream crews.
