Bite has been really good on the main dupage. Fish are constsntly moving, slightly changing where they group up day to day but staying in the same general areas. Keeping it simple with a two bait approach, using a small spook to cover alot of water and locate the schools, then using a jig to pick the areas apart. Not fishing for numbers, but the bites Ive been getting are good. Pictured is an 18.5-19in from Friday, and a ~20in fish from Sunday. (Lengths are from measuring on my rod, hence the uncertainty in exact length)

Climbed up into the east branch for three hours this morning, deep into mosquito country. Stopped to work about a 100 yd stretch that included two pools split by a riffle section littered with boulders and chunk rock. Got into the largemouths pretty good, mostly 12"-13"ers. But also got a tank, probably my PB on this river. She was a beauty. Totaled eight largemouths and two smallmouths, all on Gulp minnows on light jig heads.

Few days late on this one. The water was still surprisingly high to wade in the spot I chose to fish on the main stem and I had problem with casting angles as a result. Filled my waders a few times. Ended up with five smallmouth and a largemouth on 4" grubs.

I have had luck on the River Walk in Downtown Naperville at the north end by the pool & on the south end by the high school. I have also had luck in Plainfield by the bridges on IL 59. Hope this helps.

Happy Fourth! It was a glorious holiday morning. Water has really cleared up and is about normal summer pool. The fish are plenty active if you can find them. Started on the east branch and trickled down into the main stem. Ten fish total with equal parts largemouth and smallmouth. Also made friends with a soft shell.

Moved around in the east and west branch for about six hours. Floating weed clumps were horrendous on the east branch but fish were willing. Outside bends accounted for all bites and bigger fish came off of wood. Tossed a 4" swimming mullet saltwater Gulp on a 1/8th saltwater jig in chartreuse exclusively.
