Default Des Plaines

When Down To The Des Plaines River a couples weeks ago in lyons down by the bend. That was the first time i had been there and i was told to use Roaches. I was floatin a roach under a bobber and i landed a nice size channel cat, probably about 18 to 20 inches. As i was fishing with my brother i saw some guy pull out a decent size walleye. I was standing about 50 feet from him but it looked big. I went down and asked him what he was using and he said a jig and minnow. The next day i went down there and nothing from 7 am until 9:30. At about 10:00 i got my first walleye i think? if not sauger or saugeye?

The next couple days, some in the morning and some at sunset i was going with my brother and his friend and catching at lease 2 or 3 walleye each time out, and a couple decent size crappie.
Since the rains the water level rose and havent been catching anything. Any one know where the fish went? Maybe they need to adjust to the water level? Maybe they are used to the jig and minnow?
Can some one give me some tips on catching more walleye, what other bait do they like?
Thanks Alot
