Default Asian Carp and the Fox

I have not seen any discussion on this site about the Asian Carp and the likelyhood of it making it up the Fox. From the few articles I have found on the Internet, people are thinking the Dayton Dam is the barrier that should keep them from advancing North. I have not seen the Dayton Dam, but I have seen the fish jump. Are there additional barriers to stop them? Thoughts?

There is Dayton Dam, Dam at Geneva, St. Charles, South Elgin, Carpentersville, Algonquin. If they get above this one they can get through the locks and be in the Chain easily. Jst wait and go up as the locks open. I probably missed one **** in there somewhere too.

I still wouldn't put it past some of the invasive carp worshippers to move their beloved friends from below a dam to above it.

I live in Dayton, there is no way the carp are jumping the dam, I really doubt anyone would release them above the dam, it is a real hike to get get from the low side to the high side, not to mention who would want to even do that.

You have a lot more faith in the human race than me.

The way I see it, the carp are here, they will spread over time, best to figure out a way to utilize them. I'm not too worried about the Carp, its that dirty bomb that goes off in the Great Lakes and contaminates the drinking water that keeps me up at night.
