No river that size in Illinois is cleaner or more pristine. If you've been fishing there, you also know it's one of the best fisheries in the state. There are times there you can tell if your lure is fouled, because every clean retrieve produces a fish. THAT's what at risk here. The effect of feed-lot run-off on rivers can be staggering. If you never did anything before for smallmouth fishing in Illinois, this would be a good time to start. Go to the top of the page Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
