Hey All,
I fish the Kish most of the time, but looking for some good spots on the Rock river for bigger, and better fish. Any one have a hole they would like to share?

I am going to be working in Dixon on Wed and Thurs and I am thinking about bringing my poles along. I will be off work around 3 or so on Wed so I want to do a little fishing. I have been to dixon many times but never fished there. Anybody know of any spots or what to use for bait?

SORRY I CAN NOT TELL YOU OF ANY GOOD SPOTS IN THE DIXON AREA, BUT I WOULD DO A PHONE CHECK FOR A LOCAL BAITSHOP, AND SEE WHAT THEY WOULD SAY. I HAVE SEEN A VIDEO OF A BOAT TRIP WHERE THEY CAUGHT A REAL NICE FLATTY. THEY LAUNCHED FROM A PARK IN DIXON. ALL I CAN REMEMBER FROM THE VID. IS-WEST OF THE ARCH. DOWN HILL TO GET TO THE PARK. AGAIN SORRY I AM NO HELP.

Went out yesterday below blackhawk island to try for some cats.The water is moving pretty good and water temp was only 50-52 degrees. After looking for them for about a hour i found them schooled up behind an island where the current met from both sides and the bottom is hard and clean of silt. They were all very small but there were alot of them all in about a 10 x 10 area! Water needs to warm up and slow down! I have taken many channels from here around 28 inches but not today.Depth was about 7ft and they were right on the edge of the fast water.
