Anyone ever fished Lake Cook Rd. and N Hicks in Palatine?

Postby Brownkr111 » Mar Tue 13, 2018 8:14 pm

There's a body of water that Lake Cook goes over and a small u-shaped pond, my guess is it's shallow based on the thin strip island but I'm not sure and wondering if there's fish in there. Anyone checked this out? Here's the map link:

Driven by it a million times but never have wanted to fish it...the north side is public but I think the south side is private. Plus its right next to one of the worst roads in the state - lake cook.

About 12 years ago I was driving over it and seen two older guys in a green jon boat out there. Driven over a million times since then the only thing I've seen were a few geese and a few accessible kayak launch areas for a ninja outing. 8)

I used to live right over there, don't think there's anyway to access it. Looks super shallow and weed choked in the warmer months

Worked and lived near there was rather weed choked many years back but in recent years I thought it was far less choked. Not sure why whether there more water volume now. Let us know ! Fish it.

I've been by there countless times and have wondered the same thing. I've seen heron and egret wading the shallows, so there must be something in there.

Once I tried... couldn't find anywhere to cast from. Better hit it before everything turns leafy.
