Default FOREST PRESERVE PONDS WILL NOT OPEN APRIL !st

We received a call this morning that informed us that the Forest Preserve Ponds will not open April 1st as announced. They could not get the fish up here to release on time so they are going to hold off a week and open the ponds for trout on April 8th instead. I am sure they should have something on there web site by now. Frank

I am pretty sure this is just Cook County Forest Preserve ponds.

Should only be Cook County that is affected. Anyone remember a few years back when they open the trout seaon in the middle of the week due to a delay (blizzard up north). Now they are delayed because of a blizzard and high water conditions from down south. Can't win for losing. Anywho, April 8th is the CCFP opener.

Believe it. It was also in the Tribune today, but ONLY CCFP lakes. DuPage and other lakes still open Saturday.

I talked to a CCFP biologist directly - high waters down south have delayed the trout stocking. I have no clue where DuPage, etc get their fish from. Good news I guess if you live near the DuPage/Cook border. Fish opening trout this weekend in DuPage and fish the opening in Cook next week.

BTW - real nice of the Tribune not to mention Sag Quarries as one of the trout lakes. Eejots.

How could they do this? I went by Belleau Lake and they already had signs up that they had stocked it and that it would be open April 1...the parking lot was even closed. Was it stocked??

Nevermind...you guys were right. I went by again and they had the new signs up. Still don't get why this happens.
