Should be perfectly legal to pick off those carp with a .22.

When I worked off Hintz Rd I would fish over there a lot. The old gondola pier and patio upstream of the Milwaukee Ave bridge occasionally held a fish. (Now just broken concrete). Definitely a lot of smallmouth moving into those parts after the Hoffman dam came down. I believe dam #3 is now gone. That was the one just upstream of Touhy Ave. Most of the southern portion of the DPR has always been decent for smallmouth, especially in the runt size. Way to get out and explore. The river always changes with levels and laydowns. Bridges and culverts are definitely good starting points when it's super hot though.
