    I usually fish between the wilmington dam to IL river. Seems to be pretty good depending on what time of year it is. How bout you?

    Mdudes17,

    I was going to try fishing the river in Aroma Park sometime. Do you know if the catfishing is any good there. I would like to take my boat there.

    I fish in Kankakee right by the dam, Court St. bridge and River Road it's not bad fishing and it is not the best I've fished either, maybe it is because I have not figured it all the way out yet. Only been seriously fishing it a little under a year.
    As far as Aroma Park I don't know a great deal about the fishing there except I see alot of people shore fishing by the bridge by the park. I do know that the maps of the river I have and from hearing people talk that that section of the river has some very shallow parts making it hard to get a boat through there unless the river is up.
