Yep - good advice here. Another place is the mouth of Davis Creek. The easy access is from the State Park Youth Campground. From the parking lot walk straight east to the tree line and you will run into fisherman's trail by Davis Creek. Follow it downstream to the river a couple hundred yards.
Another spot is at the mouth of Wiley Creek off rt 113.
By the way, a couple of the places hipster mentions has ponds nearby.. If you are catfishing at night, you could gig frogs if the action is slow. Theres just nothing quite as good as fresk K3 county frog legs!

Can't help you out with Momence but as far as the state park goes the hunting areas 1-9 off of rt 113(east and west of Warner bridge) are open 24 hrs, some are closer to the river than others but they all have paths that lead to the river. Both fisherman parking areas on Warner bridge(north and south side of river) are 24 hrs. I have done ok below the area 9 boat launch and access is about as easy as it gets
