It's not often the water levels are this low when the temps start to drop. It makes so much more fishable/walkable shoreline in those stretches of the Fox between Elgin and Yorkville. Love that popper bite too, talk about adrenaline!

Thru a Similar Luckycraft 70 green white feathers as well today.Had No Luck with it. I believe I was fishing south of you. Saw people out every day this week scattered up and down the river. Walked away from a bunch of small fish,today stopped counting ,moved on. Managed a 16 incher on a dark grub for my best. Too me the Water was high compared to what I had read on the USGS site. Places that were knee deep a few days ago are now waist high. Water was also a bit dirty.IMHO LOL! rAN INTO Jason Norris.on the River last week, at the EXACT same place I met him 15 years ago Serendipity Was great fun to talk about Old Days on this site and names such as Andrew Ragas, Brandon Sheperd and the infamous Ken G.. Seems like not that long ago until I look in the Mirror and see an old guy looking back~
