Fished the DuPage River this past weekend from a kayak for a few hours.  Caught 5 total smallmouths and lost two nice largemouth.  The biggest smallmouth was 17.5", my biggest from this river - photo attached.  Also saw a bunch of wildlife including a deer on the shoreline.  

If anyone is interested, I posted a video of the day.

Thinking of making the trip south to fish the DuPage.(I live near McHenry) Are there decent shore fishing areas? Will I need waders/hip boots? Looking for smallmouth... Thanks.

Squarebills and jigs w/ 4" paddletails. Water levels are good and the river is running very clear. Lots of nature out and about.

Can anyone tell me where to find spots to fishing on the DuPage River? I live near 53 and 75th and just saw a sign about the river, but didn’t know if I could fish anywhere near me or if there are designated spots you have to fish. 

Thanks

Went to a couple of spots on the west branch and ended up at Hammel Woods on Thursday.  Water was 44 degrees and fishing slow but did have some action.  First smallie of the year felt good on a Ned Rig.

Smallies were hitting a Goby style Gulp on a jig head late last week. Hits were more often aggressive than timid. Good numbers.

Got quite a few smallies in the changing conditions late last week. 4" Gulp minnow on a jig with a moderately fast retrieve was the ticket.
