It's the launch at Spring Valley. Depending on where your coming from theres another launch at Hennepin. Hennepin is further south on the river from Spring Valley. If Hennepin is closer for you launch there it will save you time of traveling down river from Spring Valley.

Fishslayer, come on down and slay them carp. They are up and jumpin as I write. Kill em all, enjoy yourself. Launch from Bartos at Spring Valley and work yourself south and from there enjoy the draw of the Bow.

two weeks ago trolling, jigging and floaters. most fish were 10 to 14 ft of water. fish were caught all over . clam beds and flats produced most. fish were caught at the dam also water temp was 67 i would guess it cooled down a bit since.

Got out today from 7:30am-2pm, to put it lightly, I got smoked! Bite is VERY tough, I jigged and trolled and wound up loosing 1 Sauger and catching 2 sheephead and 3 catfish (jigging). The water is real muddy, the dam is open and letting water through. Fished Starved Rock and Bartow Landing and also 39 bridge. there were not many nets hitting the water, seemed to be tough going for about everyone. The Peru Flats had alot of boats all day, A buddy of mine was fishing the MWC and was in the Flats today and said it was slow going there as well. The Bite was hot and heavy on Sunday and Monday last week and has faded hard. Hopefully it will come back! Crying
