You're really better off putting your boat in on Pool 13. I launch in Savanna, IL. You can buy a hard copy Fishing Hot Spots map or chip for that pool which will pretty much tell you everything you could possibly want to know. Fishing the wing dams is almost a sure thing, especially on the river bends. The back side of the Bellevue Dam is also a good spot.
Like anywhere on the big river, be cautious about driving over wing dams. They can be prop killers.
