I have fished the Kankakee River many times before but I keep seeing reports about the Wilmington Dam. I just had a few questions about where it was, how to get there, and do you have to wade or can you fish from shore? Thanks. :?:
Ah, the good ole wilmington dam. I used to fish there a ton when I was a kid. The river underneath the dam is pretty shallow so you can pretty much wade all the way across. Used to pull a ton of bass out of there. It can get pretty crowded at times though.
Do a google map search for the Dam Bait Shop at
123 Bridge St
Wilmington, IL 60481
Its right at the dam and will get you right there.
