Default Anything happening at Starved Rock

My brother wants to go do a hiking trip Saturday the 19th. He's also wanting to a fishing trip while we're there. With the weather we have going on right now I'm not sure if it's even worth a shot.

Looking for any opinions on if it'll be worth trying, or save myself the trouble and not pack up the gear.

We'd be doing bank fishing only. I mainly try for pan fish, Perch, bluegill, and the like.

River is at flood stage and rising... Not much shore access from Starved Rock with high water... I'd bet the launches aren't doing well either....

Since I will be with my niece as well as my brother I'd rather not take equipment that would not be used and just enjoy the park.

Thanks for the info JKS and the link. I'll be sure to keep checking back on it. Looking at it now it'll be just below flood when I head out there. Which is still not promising from what you've said.

Here's the gauge for LaSalle/Peru... The Starved Rock gauge didn't show stages, only depth...
