Thought I would use this thread to get some discussion going about Salt Creek.
I live down around River Forest and took my son for a walk on the paved trail around WestChester. There is some nice scenery, good access to the water, I even felt like this didn't seem like Chicago a few times.
I've fished it at Busse Woods where just about everyone else has, just pulling out dinks really, but further downstream is a lot closer to me. I've also fished it around Elmhurst/Addison and aside from seeing one carp jump, basically didn't see any kind of aquatic life at all.
Thinking about trying somewhere between where it dumps into the Desplaines and say Westchester, it looks pretty wade friendly, but I'm wondering will I find any smallies or crappie? Anyone have any experience or thoughts on this? Feel free to PM if you prefer not to hot-spot.
Thanks and good look to all.
