:D Caught my first 06 northern pike in DesPlaines River Dam#1
The small pike only 22 inch weight 2LB,but had a nice fight with the fish
Use softbait on 8lb test line,Fish at 10:35am-10:50am before work.
My buddy also caught two largemouth 10" and 13" on spinnerbait.

no, i dont think there is, but there is a canoe launch down the road a ways off of milwaukee at (Greg or Gary something)??? forest preserve, across from the ??? hotel. Sorry, i looked up boat launches last summer and my memory has slipped a bit. But the only boat launches i found for the mighty dp are way, way south, nothing up around the nw burbs.
