I have never fished the Fox river so I am very unfamiliar with the area and am a shore bound angler. Is moraine hills state park the only public shore access? And does anyone know the hours? I would make a trip and stay after dark if thats allowed so I wouldn't have to wait for the weekend. Thanks

I'm going to try launch down by 176 on Friday and motor up to the dam, I'm sure the locks are wide open as the water is dropping fast up here on the chain. It'd be nice to pluck a couple eyes for a friday night fish fry...

Thanks.  I've fished Burlington dam kind of shallow right now.

Mchenry Dam is south of 120 on South River road, there is another one down in Algonquin, 31 and Algonquin road. The next nearest one in Wisconsin on the Fox is up in Burlington.

Yes thanks I know of the McHenry dam. Just looking for any fishable spillways or dams up north by lake Catherine and channel. Or even into southern Wisconsin

There are no dams or spillway on the river in IL north of the Chain.  There used to be one at Wilmot WI but it was removed, not sure where the next one is going north.
