Default kankakee dam ?

I drove by the dam yesterday and the north side has been remodeled, is fishing still allowed from that side ? All parking has been removed also, what gives ? No one was fishing either side of the dam, only tons of litter on the south side. Is fishing better in at the Wilmington Dam ?

Is the North side opposite the side of the Dam Bait shop??

No parking, what the....?
Maybe their in the process of revamping that area, with the idea of eventually repaving??

Don't know, haven't been down there since last fall. Anybody got the low down?

Default k3 dam

Yes , you can fish from either side of the river .

You can park in the city lot across the street from the bar and walk back to fish the remodeled side . It's less than a block walk .

thanks for the information about where to park, would you happen to know if the turbines at the dam ever shut down ? it seems that fishing would be better if they were off ? any thoughts on that to anyone that fishes the dam on a regular basis ?
