Default K3 - Area 9 access or Des Plaines Conservation Area

Looking to go out on the boat w/ my buddy and his son on Saturday. I was wondering if river level was OK to launch here or should I launch and fish the Des Plaines conservation area ? Also, has anyone been out to any of these areas lately with any reports or tips. Thank you in advance.

The river is fine for launching at the DPCA the bite has been spotty though. Should pick up at the water warms a little..

Default river

I've been on the river every weekend since the last week of Jan. water is cold but its high enough to launch I've caught fish every weekend good Luck I'm finding fish on the first drop from shallow to the channel I've been using a 4" plastic worm green flake on an 1/8 oz. jig head bouncing bottom very slow and the bite is very light if you feel anything set the hook so far my best this year is a 19" largemouth they dont put up much of a fight in the cold water. The next couple of weeks they should really turn on look for warm water near deep drop offs. Have fun and leave some fish for me. Fish81156
