About three weeks ago. Nada. Have had better results north of there so far this year, between Ogden and Butterfield. Looking forward to a report.

East Branch or West........ 8:)


Not many people know where each branch crosses Hobson. Not many people know you can fish the entire stretch of either branch from the high water mark or below. Doesn't matter who's property it flows through.

I was assuming West, but you're right you could fish the East Branch south of Hobson. I doubt very much that you would be allowed to fish the East Branch North of Hobson where it cuts through the Seven Bridges G. C or the River Bend G. C. You would have to go north of Maple wouldn't you?

Do a little research, wade where you want, bank-fish below the high water mark golf course or not, be prepared and be polite.

I was out there on Friday. Hobson and Wahington. I caught one smallie and missed two. I was out for about an hour. Caught'em on a white rooster tail. I saw a few jumping, does any one know what that means? Anyway, I'll be back to that spot soon I hope.

Actually you're wrong. EVERY naturally occurring body of water is held in public trust. Navigable or not, the DuPage is a naturally occurring body of water. This goes the same for every other stream and creek in the United States. Do the research, someone else already has, and for the sake of keeping my name in good favor over here, I won't take it any further than that.

I was down there yesterday. I caught about 12 largies and 1 smalli. No size to any. Fish are hitting. All caught on a jig and twister combo.
