Default West branch of dupage river fishing

I found a great place in downtown Naperville to fish the river I went there for 1 hour we caught a channel catfish, 4 rock bass, 2 smallmouth, and 1 bluegill. If your wondering what we were using is just a hook, sinker, and worms and it turned out great. The spot is just downstream of Centennial Beach, and by Paddleboat Quarry. I'm also on the lookout for new places so if you could help me out that would be great.

i fish the river quiet a bit considering i mow my grandmas lawn there every week, i have cought the most along the riverwalk downtown.

also right off 75th there is a park called pioneer park, if you wade downstream the fishing is really good.

i usually use rebel craws, origional rapalas, and minow jigs

one day at the very end of summer i cought prolly over 40 smallies in a few hours on a minow jig on the riverwalk. nothing over 15" but it was crazy, almost everycast i would bring one in. god i felt like a celebrity, i had a crowd the whole time! got pretty old though.
