LOL, I have always wondered if people get hurt doing that.I have seen quite a few do that,and never saw anybody miss.Thanks for the laugh.Me and Bassman know of a couple more spots in the area that you can hurt yourself while fishing, without doing any jumping.

Actually the whole Rock Creek area can be dangerous if you're not careful. Back in my drinking days, I slipped on a rock and sustained a major cut in my hand. Of course we know that one bleeds like a stuck pig in certain "conditions". The concession building staff took 15 minutes to find a first aid kit....which only had a few tiny band-aids.
DOH!

Razzo,

I have been looking for Rock Creek for a longtime and am unable to find it. Can you tell me where or How to get there from HWY 55. I usually wade the Fox River, but love the Kankakee any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Gonefishin

Gonefishin,

I am primarily a Fox Rat too. Hope to learn K3 soon though. From Int 55:

Pass over the DesPlaines River (1st Bridge)

Before the second bridge for the K3 take the exit to Wilmington.

That "road" will intersect with Route 53. Go right.

Take Rt. 53 into Wilmington.

Turn left at the light for Route 102.

Once you get to the K3 State Park keep your eye out. When you pass over the bridge for Rock Creek go in the first park entrance on the right.

Wind your way back to the Creek.

You should be able to park by the consession stand which is near the foot bridge that goes over the creek.

Sorry, I don't know the name of that Park entrance.

Good luck and enjoy,
Razzo
