Brian and I are talking about hitting the Kaskaskia River next year between Mascoutah and New Athens. I've heard there is some great catfishing in that section, but I don't personally know anyone who fishes it. I am new to river fishing - does anyone have any info., tips, etc. on this stretch of the river? I know the Mascoutah - Fayetteville section is not channelized and the Fayetteville - New Athens section is channelized. Two different types of river. All info is greatly appreciated!!!
