    Use to fish the Newton Power Plant Lake while living in Central Illinois. Have caught a lot of fish there, mostly eaters.

    I dont fish East fork, but I have fished Newton some and do alot of fishing and camping at Sam Dale lake conservation area. Catch mostly eaters in either one of these lakes.
