Water is low low-LOW. i haven't heard any decent reports except fishing is slow..

I'm heading to Seneca this weekend. I think the river water temp has dropped to the mid 70's.

I'll post a temp when I get back.

Water temp is 45, water clarity is no 2 in very dirty. River is on the rise , higher than normal .Go to www.spring-vallry-walleye.orgriver.htm, then click current river conditions, on there is a link to Illinois walleye trail then click on ill. river conditions it will give you lock and dam report for Starved rock , Lasalle /Peru and Henry current river readings . The sauger can be caught in high dirty water bulk up your jig or crank em with loud baits and bright colors , they will be in close to the bank, sometimes jigged them up in 4- 6 fow. Check all current breaks .

Was there on Monday and the water was 3 feet high and dropping. Clarity not bad. Caught 11 sauger. MWC tournament is this weekend with 160 or more boats. If you don't mind the crowds the conditions will be good.
