I did notice the DPR below the Brandon lock and dam, water is up nearly 2ft and flowing fast this morning. Dupage river level changes were observable, but minimal.
Bobba Down wrote:That is true. Water levels in that spot are more dependant on how much water they are letting through the dam, and it always fluxuates up and down. Im sure by tomorrow, or even later in the day the water will be back down. But that area has consistently been very low the last couple weeks, and the fact that there was enough water above the dam to open things up a bit, is atleast a good sign.
Friday morning I landed around 40 smallies, three largemouth, my PB Fox Eye (at around 24"), and lost a nice cat. I tossed spinnerbaits, wide eye shad, Peanut, and spook. Almost all were caught on the peanut. The bulk of the smallies were 12-14", a few were in the 16-17" class. I couldn't bring the big girls to hand to save my life, but I had 5-6 missed oppurtunities. The fresh water brought a much needed reprieve to the heat. The renewed energy and fight was evident as all the fish - walleye aside - fought like champs.
