Fished at Walton Island right below the dam with my son from 11 am to 2:30 pm this past Saturday.  Our target species was small mouth bass and channel catfish.  The water conditions were "normal" with a slight current and slightly stained but not horrible.  We were using minnows and night crawlers.  We landed two small mouth bass during our session and the Fox is still producing monsters.  Unfortunately, I left my orange and black digital fishing scale at Walton Island.  I'd like some help getting it back but I know it's a long shot...

Suggestions on where good launches on the river may be from geneva north to 94. Looking to fish the area.

Fished the Fox River this past Saturday.  Started the fishing session at 11:30 am and fished until 4pm.  We launched the boat at Elgin Continental and worked our way North towards the Riverboat.  Water temp was 46°F.  We were marking fish all around the boat but they were not committing to anything we threw at them.  Minnows, Ned Rig, Swimbaits, Cranks.  They didn't want it.  My buddy landed a nice two pound Smallmouth while dead sticking.  Afterwards we decided to chase Crappies working our way south towards the South Elgin Dam.  We just worked the shorelines hitting structure and docks and I landed a pleasant surprise in the picture attached.  Overall it was a fun day just to be out in open water and on a boat.  Great things to come this 2021 season.  Tight lines everyone!

Fished under the I-90 bridge on Friday and Saturday morning.  There was a lot more ice on Friday under the bridge than on Saturday and this was very important to catching fishing.  On Friday the fish were stacked under the ice and all we had to do was fish the ice edge and we were catching them.  Crappie, Blugills, White Bass, and Large Mouthbass, all were being caught on Friday.  We had a slay feast!  Me and my son started the fishing session at 12pm and ended at 3pm.  I returned back Saturday morning to slay the fish again and the ice was basically gone from the fishing spot and the school of fish disappeared.  The only thing I caught on Saturday was 4 small largemouth bass.  It was good to finally fish some open water!
