Default Solitary Fishing

Hi all,

Just moved from Canada where I used to be able to hike into some fairly solitary areas with my dog and do some fishing.

I'm wondering if there are any areas where this is possible in Dupage County, I don't want anyone's secret spots I just enjoy the opportunity to get out with my dog, get some exercise without interrupting anyone.

fishing opportunities for bass are ideal, but the main thing is a quiet area where I can either make my way up stream or around the edge of a lake and do some fishing. I have no issue getting waist deep and doing some trekking. I'm comfortable with a 2-3 mile turn arounds.

Looking at google maps I thought about going to Salt Creek and accessing at Bemis Woods or Salt Creek Woods and wading up river from there. Can anyone give me any indication as to whether that portion of the creek is traversable and whether I should expect to encounter many people along that portion of the creek.

I know some people don't care for dogs so, I'm trying to avoid areas with consistent traffic.

Any help is appreciated.
