    Anyone been on the Illinois in Ottawa lately? the rain here in Peru (5 + inches the last two days) has the river running fast. I am taking my grandsons Monday to Ottawa and see whats going on.

    There's a boat ramp on the south side of the river in Peru. Cross the river on 251, make the first turn to the right, follow the road to the river. I don't have a boat but my grandson and I fish there a lot.

    Glad to hear you did well in Spring Valley. We went to Ottawa last Monday and didn't do very well at all.:angry:
