Well I know this isn't much about northern Illinois Lakes, but I checked the River Board with not much success, so I'll try here. I am looking for success/failure record on this River. I was biking through Green Valley Forest Preserve (Woodridge) for the first time and saw the River running through it. Basically the location is South of 75th/North of 83rd, West of Route 53 and East of I don't know. Anyone fished the river in this preserve? Sorry bout the long note, but thanks for replys!

Fished it once with limited success in early spring about 3-4 years ago. Caught some panfish(sunfish/warmouths) and a small carp.

Fish found in the East Branch of the DuPage River, which flows thru Greene Valley F.P. are
Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish,Blue Gill, Green Sunfish, Black Bullhead, Common Carp, and White Crappie. Fishing is fair to good depending on water levels and temperature. I have seen 15 inch
bass taken from this section of the river.

I just started fishing the East Branch a few weeks ago. At 75th street I've caught a number of small (6 to 9 inch) smallies and largemouths. Last week I caught a 12 inch largemouth there. Fished Maple Ave (55th steet) a couple of times. First time there I caught 10 small smallies in 'bout 45 minutes. There's a pool just south of the bridge on the east side over the river just past where the flow merges from under the bridge. The pool's 'bout 3 feet deep. Caught most of 'em right there. Most fish were caught on a Mepps #2 Aglia w/Tan & Brown tail feathers. Tried 63rd street Sunday night w/no luck. River seems to be a bit wider and more shallow at that point.

Hey localpondlover,
Fished the East Branch at 55th street last night (after getting skunked at Hidden Lake)and picked up a 14 inch smallie on the Mepps #2 w/tan&brown tail. It was the only strike I had all night. The current was quite a bit swifter than usual due to the rain earlier this week. Caught the smallie further downstream than I normally fish there. Good Luck.
