If you're thinking of fishing the river over the holiday go somewhere else.I had the bug today and gave it a try but it's high and dirty and still expected to rise somemore.It was higher than the feeder creeks backing up into them so I couldn't find any clean water coming in.Today's catch was 6 sheephead,1 small sauger,1 smallie,1 18" channel cat,and a first ever on the river northern pike 22".All fish were caught on a minnow and pink 16th oz. jig tight to shore.

Location: Not quite over the hill, but has a breathtaking view from the lofty perch.

Thanks for the update RT, did you try the Vermilion for some white bass?

The vermillion was the dirtiest water feeding in and the Illinois below there was a real mess.Any heavy rains around Pontiac or other nearby towns flow into the vermillion.
