Nice walleye George!

That's actually the third confirmed report I've seen of a walleye from the Chicago River. Forget about targeting them though. There is just about every species of freshwater fish in the Great Lakes and tributaries. And occasionally, the rare fish will be caught.

Northern pike and walleye ARE present in Lake Michigan. Just goes to show how the water quality is increasing throughout.

Next up for you George... a smallmouth bass from the NSC. They ARE in there!
