Fox River – Illinois
Jay’s General Comments
The Fox River enters Illinois near Antioch and flows south/southwest for 115 miles, emptying into the Illinois River. The Fox River is one of the most versatile bodies of water to fish in Illinois. There are over 100 public access points along this stretch for fishing.
The Fox River offers a wide variety of fishing opportunities for all anglers. The Fox is probably most popular for smallmouth bass, catfish, Musky and walleye. The populations of largemouth bass, white bass, yellow bass, northern pike, and panfish are also good.
