I'm in carbondale. I've heard panfish and cats are doing ok up there at rend. If you're goin for bass, drive another hours and go to egypt, devils kitchen or cedar. Crab been really good for cats from what I've heard, my buddies got a couple 6-8lb channels out there the other day. I think we're supposed to get a few fronts rollin through here this wkend, could be good or bad!

I get down there about once a year. You can find crappies an any shaded area (piers / bridges) throughout the summer. Nice bluegill close to shore around any rip-rap area. Float a chicken liver under a bobber in the rip-rap while fishing for gills and you'll pick up some nice channel cats. Locals can put you on white & largemouth bass.
