Default DesPlaines Conservation Area?

How's the fishin' there? Good Smallmouth bite? Also, I've heard about the Prarrie Creek mouth. I don't even know if it flows into the K3 but, I hear it has good bass and norterns, is this true?

I haven't been the Conservation Area yet this year but I don't think you'll find smallies. There are decent largemouth, pike, crappie and some cats but the smallies stay in the main river. As for Prairie Creek, it does run into the river and can be great spot to fish. A bonus is that Miliken Lake is right next to the creek so you can fish it as well. Hope this helps.

I like to fish for largies. Good spring bite if water levels are up. Good slop fishing too. Mobility is the key!
