Has anyone ever put a small boat in at the Elgin Shores forest preserver boat launch. Just wondering the average water depth as well as how the bass fishing is.


Thanks.

Got some smallies on a KVD 1.0 in chartreuse/black and Berkeley Rage Tails in white on jigs, and channel catfish on Gulp on light jig heads. Fished from 6:30 until 10:00 this morning and hit a rocky stretch with lots of riffles.

Haven't been to the Fox since well before the deluge. It's finally wadeable, albeit still substantially above summer norms. Smallmouth weren't exactly jumping to get onto the end of my line but I did manage a half dozen with one tank. Channel catfish were much more willing and I got as many of those as I did bass in a fraction of the time trying for them. Much better average sizes too.

Fished Yorkville area.  Water at summer pool but very dirty (too bad).  I pine for the clear water days.  The dirty water makes smallmouth fishing tough, but no moss!!!!  3 hours in the afternoon- 1000 kayakers, 3 bass, 1 giant catfish.  wader about 1 mile of river.
