  13. ISA Membership Drive 2021 After a one year pause on membership fees due to the Covid pandemic, the ISA is pleased to announce its Membership Drive for this summer.

The beautiful custom made rods are 6’8” Medium XF custom rods with the ISA name and logo placed on them. These are must have rods for any ISA smallmouth fishermen. Other prizes will also be given away as part of the raffle drawings. We will conduct three raffle drawings this summer to be held on June 1, July 1 and August 1, 2021. The August 1, 2021 raffle drawing will be conducted live at the ISA Picnic this summer at the Glenwood Forest Preserve near Batavia on August 1, 2021. We will give away one rod each at the June 1 and July 1 drawings and 3 rods at the August 1 live picnic drawing.

The ISA is also pleased to announce that during the month of May, it will be partnering with the Lombard Orvis store as part of the Orvis Giveback Days program, which runs from May 1 – May 31st.

  15. We’re back at it. The Northwest Region hosted a Kishwaukee River float trip on Saturday, April 24th. This was the first official outings event the ISA has held since the pandemic hit shortly after the 2020 Bronzeback Blowout. We had a total of 8 casters covering 3 sections of the Kish from seven different boats. Myself, Eugene, Steve and Jim floated the mid section of the Kish with Eugene having the hot reel for the day pulling in a total that dipped well into double-digits. All in this group landed smallies and all enjoyed an absolutely beautiful day with beautiful weather. Bart and Eric G. took their kayaks to Belvidere and did a float of the Kishwaukee north branch while Paul and Kevin D. headed south to toss theirs into a section of the Kish south of Rockford. Those guys will have to fill you all in on how they all did with the catching and releasing on their sections of river. Certainly could not have asked for a better day.
  16. Meet at The canoe launch in Cherry Valley @ 9am. Canoe launch River Launch at Baumann Park https://goo.gl/maps/EYmA2zKMGgd5nhTC6
  17. I’m coming up with 7. Looks like there are a total of seven (7) interested in this Saturday’s float. We will need to split if these numbers stay the same or grow even larger.
