There's rainbow trout in the Chicago river???urbanHog312 said:I cannot report on any fish this year as i have not given it a go. last year i was able to catch a couple largemouth in the west loop. I'd do it more often but its a pain brining my pole on a train and in the office. thought about investing in a telescopic rod but all the ones i find are cheaply made.
I will comment on the river and say it is not as bad as people think. Nearly every game fish is able to thrive in the river including walleye and rainbows. a thousand channel catfish were released in the river near the loop less than a year ago
