What are you thinking of taking some home for the frying pan?

First off I don't think there's a large enough population of walleye to justify culling them. Secondly they swim, eat, breathe DPR water. Tasty isn't exactly the description that comes to mind!

I saw two seperate groups on Sat catch fish off the bottum, carp or cats and they both kept them. I was amazed at this. I have eaten carp (not in this country) and it was edible at best. But from the DPR? are you kidding me?! It still gives me chills.

Default what is edible?

Has anyone eaten fish from the DPR? Which ones are safe?
If they are not, then why are we fishing this river?

Not everyone fishes for food. Its the hunt, the fight, the being outdoors that makes it worth it.

It will give you lanthanide poisoning, and you will get cancer. But really, don't eat from the DPR, there's waste dumped in there, and also, the river sits next to a lot of old landfills. So if you like to eat the fish you catch, don't go to the DPR, or anywhere else I like to fish.

In the Illinois fishing regulation booklet there is a section that will tell you which fish you should avoid out of certain bodies of water.

As far as why WE fish the DPR? I don't know about you Jeff but I fish it for sport only, like most smart fishermen.
