I used that launch once. That day going upstream I found a shallow flat area that was loaded with carp. Didn’t fish for them and thought I would go back someday but never did.

I would recommend that you find some carp locations. Bait the area with corn then anchor up and fish small hooks threaded with corn. You will have a blast.
You might find that you enjoy it and will make it a regular thing.

You can launch underneath 294 in Park Ridge Google map it. Not supposed to drive in or park there. I used to park on Sibley (think that’s the name) and cart my canoe or yak down to the river. I fished that stretch to Algonquin Rd many times. At times it was really good and sometimes it wasn’t but I rarely skunked there. Mostly pike and rock bass.

You can drive in there but it’s really not allowed.
I know a good one way paddle but you would need a bicycle and be willing to walk your yak about 1 1/3 miles down a paved path. It’s a bit of work but at times it’s worth it. It’s on the southern section.
