Just wondering if there are any smallmouth in the Chicago River? Anyone on this site ever caught one in there? I noticed that in City Limits the show Ike went into the Chicago River allbeit much closer to the lake and caught them in there.

yea...i have never heard of any caught by where i fish the river? by foster and up...but it possible.

that show is sweet tho...he got a nice smallie too...i have heard of people catching them in the downtown area...close to the lake...and i even remember a year or two ago, when mayor daley marked the free fishing days, there was a picture in the redeye or tribune...of a little girl with a small smallie. and the caption said it was from chicago river...the backround seemed to be in the loop.

i remember this so well because that picture was the deciding factor to make me start bass fishing the river.

I have not fished downtown anywhere :( ...because acess seems to be a issue...i have the work pole under my desk tho...and plan on getting out on a lunch break one of these days!

hope this helps a little
