Kankakee fishing trip - finally !!
A few weeks ago I requested information for a trip we had planned to the Kankakee State Park. Life got in the way for a couple of weeks but this weekend we will be fishing in the area.
With all the additional time, and the great tips we received, we are down to two options:
Option 1 Fish from the shore ( wade ) We received many suggestions as far as locations. Any additional will be appreciated. Thanks for each one. (We will be staying in Bournonnais)
Option 2 Rent a canoe One suggestion was to contact http://www.reedscanoetrips.com/trips.htm
. We did From their site The put-in point is at the Illinois 17 crossing of the river; pickup is at Aroma Park, six miles downstream. We will be drifting with the river flow. Our question does this sound like a good area as far as catching fish? All comments appreciated.
Thanks - Mike
