A couple of those pictures looked all too familiar. :wink:

South side, Ashland Avenue, south of 22nd street.
Stand on the Ashland bridge over the river looking east.
43 years ago we would walk to this bridge and drop cinder blocks on carp, get bored, then throw lit matches on the water trying to make it catch on fire. Bubbly creek was not that far away.

A couple of hundred yards to the east, try to figure out how to get to the north shore.

This section of the river, in March, the water should be in the 50's. It was 8 years ago.

Wander around and fish. Getting near the water isn't always easy. You'll see. But it may be worth it. :wink: :wink:
