    Hey all,

    My sister in law is a guest of the federal goverment at Pekin FPC and my wife (a travel nurse) might be taking a 3 month assignment in the Pekin/Peoria area this spring/summer so that she and the kids can visit her more often. I was wondering what the catfishing was like in the Illinois River around there. How does it compare to a really good place like, say, Alton, IL? or Evansville, IN?

    Thanks for all the help.

    Good fishing all along the Illinois River.

    Great fishing right from the bank at the Pekin Boat dock and park that is there fish at night and there is not as many people and boats, need a long pole to cast out to the channel lip but you will get some nice ones.
