Had a nice time on the river fish for about 3 hours hook in to some good size ones off minnows
Fox River Area Above Algonuin Dam
Yes above dam is plenty deep 6-10ft in the channel and you can lock through to the chain, but the last post is correct you need a sticker that cost $100 to be on the river and chain. Plus the river is low now with next to zero current so fishing is tough, and boat traffic will be crazy on nice days with 25ft boats and wake boat making big waves. but every thing that is on the chain is in the river (if you know where to fish).
You should turn your messenger on. You might get more replies. Yes, the river is deep enough above the Algonquin dam for a boat. Normally you can go all the way to the McHenry dam and even go thru the lock to the Chain O'Lakes. Anybody correct me if I'm wrong but you still need a Fox Water Way sticker for your boat as that is zone A.
