I think the rivers here in Kankakee are the best shape I've seen in the 8 years living on the Iroqous just before she dumps into K3. If anyone wants to come and fish let's get together I have nice pontoon and love to get Waleyes.

I'll second that, though. Before the rain yesterday, me n the Cap'n both limited out, if you can use that term for released fish. Half were legal or close. Better than a pike per hour each for 2 guys, not counting LM bass. Yeah, the Desp was a thumbs up.

Re: Chicago Tribune gave Kankakee river 5 star rating saturd

well, I was encouraged by this as I had planned to hit it this morning, but not any good, at least not where I went. Now take this for what its worth, as I have very limited knowledge of the K3...
Water is EXTREMELY low! Ankle deep isnt even an accurate descprition as to how shallow it was at the first spot I hit today. Now, for those that wade the river, this might be good, but as I said, I have very limited knowledge. I only wade one or two stretches, and even then I am very cautious as depths change quickly, but water was too shallow to hold any fish. The only thing I was were some crayfish as a disturbed some rocks.
The other two spots were similar. Water depth wasnt as extreme, but still low. Here, all I saw were alot of carp and some schools of minnows, looked like maybe bluegills? Not sure what they were. They looked long and thin, almost transparent, and i could make out a small dot on them (near the gills)
Otherwise, nothing! I did see a couple turtles, and a decent sized frog that kept chasing by plastic frog! he took two good lunges at it that nearly got him hooked! **** cannibal!
I really never saw any bass. Sucker fish, about a school of 10-15, and minnows. I threw cranks, plastics, frogs into and near the lilly pads, big lures, small lures, you name it. water was a bit stained, but for the K3, not too bad.
Maybe a trip in the tubes wouldnt be bad, being able to cover a large area of water, but otherwise I am going to stay clear for now. Hope you guys have better luck than I did.

It also gave the Des Plaines a 4 star rating. Take it with a grain of salt. I've been out 2-3 trips a week. 4-10 fish a trip. Nothing really has changed. Lots and lots of grass breaking loose, water stained with a dirty look that is similar to the Iroquois. I haven't seen or heard of any 5 star fishing from anyone.

Hope it's legit and not hearsay.

Chicago Tribune gave Kankakee river 5 star rating saturday

the saturday Tribune said fishing was excellent on all areas of the kank. Including someone taking an 8 lb walleye at momence, as well as a 42 inch Northern Pike between Momence & the state line...

Was the first time in some time, i'd see it get higher than 3 stars... 4 is rare, 5 unheard of. Glad to hear a few good things happen on the kank
