The cold water hasn't stopped the bite in the least. The largemouth and rock bass are still very active. Also got my first pike in almost tens years fishing the Dupage. All fish taken on 3" Gulp minnows, which has come to be my dominant favorite for  coldwater fishing.

Yeah that rain hit a little too early in the month and the weeds weren't ready yet. And the water's been pretty low since early October so weeds have slowly been popping loose and mucking up the river a bit. Add the leaves to that and reeling can be a bit difficult. Have still been getting largemouth, crappie, rock bass, and smallmouth on jigs with Gulp.

Floating weeds are from them dying

I was wondering the same thing. I was getting caught up in a lot of the weeds floating downstream yesterday. I thought by this time of the year they would be cleared out.

Went yesterday for a few hours and caught 6 smallmouth.  Beautiful day to be out.  Are all the floating weeds in the river due to the amount of rainfall we've been getting or turnover?

Out in the a.m. with a chilly start. Sun had to catch the water for a bit before my first bite but managed four largemouth and a rock bass between 9:00 and 10:00.

Get out and get some because this bite won't last forever. The river is absolutely hopping at the moment. 1/8th oz jig with a 4" Gulp minnow taking fish of all species right now.

Lots of nature out and about. My favorite time of the year to be outdoors.
