Looking to head out to the Warrenville Dam that everyone talks about. Can anyone please give insight as to where this may be?

Waded the river today....sort of embaressing to say but I had no tubes, so I ended up trying some in lines( which was a waste of a half hour) then tried a jig tipped with pink/white grub with still no success.. Had a couple bites, they were so light it was almost hard to tell they were bites.......

I hit the west branch again on 11/27 with my father. We were out there from 9am-11am. Fished a few holes. In the 2 hours we were out there my dad caught 1 largemouth. probably just under a foot in length. he caught one small mouth in the pic i have attached and then i caught one large creek minnow lol. It was about 37 degrees out and we were fishing minnows on floating jig heads off the bottom. The small mouth are out there. but unless you drop bait right in the hole they are hunkering down in, you probably won't catch much.

Went fishing twice last week. Once in the morning of 11/28 and then again on 11/30. Fished in the morning 730am-930am on 11/28. Fished 4pm - dark on 11/30. I fished the warrenville dam. Weather was middle 40s both days. on 11/28 I used 4 inch grubs on 1/4 oz jig heads. Used a white grub on red jig head and brown grub with black jig head. Got nothing. I noticed a lot of activity on the top water. So I decided to try a top water Sammy 100 on sunday evening when i went. Got nothing. A couple kayakers came through and advised they had caught a few smallys north of the dam using spinners. I hardly fish in fall due to it being hunting season, but in the warmer months i fish often in winfield. but anywhere from Army trail road in bartlett till the dam in naperville. I normally do well on white spinners. Rooster tails and mepps. I'll get out there again this sunday with some spinners.

My son and I fished yesterday morning and evening.  Not much happening in the morning, but the bite was on in the evening.  We were using jig heads tipped with minnows or crawlers off of the bottom and sometimes suspended 18 inches below a bobber.  I didn't catch anything, but my son caught 5 largemouths and 2 smallmouths in about an hour and a half. 


The second smallmouth he caught was the biggest I have ever seen, it was easily 5 to 6 pounds.  He got it to shore and went to lip it and it got off.  I had no idea this river held smallies that huge.  What was weird about the fish, was that it had a hump on its back like a peacock bass.  Maybe that is normal for a smallie that big.  Looks like I'll have to do some research.
