Apple River info inquiry


Recommended Posts

I've heard so much about this river, but never had been there. I spent this past weekend with my wife at Galena's Eagle Ridge and played golf instead of fishing. On the way back home on Sunday I took a side trip to Apple River Canyon St. Pk. and had a look at the river. I'm now curious about where our ISA guys go into the river to fish. I saw one person right by the bridge at the park, but understand there's some hiking to get to where most of the fishing is done. Can someone give me a clue....are you going upstream or downstream to do most of the fishing? We have friends in that area of the state, so we just may try to get back up there next year.

If you wade upstream you'll soon be into private property. Downstream is a better option. Stay out of the very deep hole near the parking lot that is posted 'no wading'. Watch for obvious signs such as barbed wire or no trespassing signs when heading downstream.


Send me a private message and I'll give you a couple other spots to try.
