The chain requires a fox river stamp, can be bought on site but still another requirement..


They don't screw around either. I got stopped 50 yds off the launch. It wasn't worth the $27 or so to buy the stupid stamp for the day.

I think smaller lake and rivers are a good idea. Buses has different species and nice park area. Or something like a float trip on des plaines river would be cool bc it's sheltered and people can take their time if they want

The only thing about a river float on the DPR is that with a larger group, it will be crowded because the river is narrow in most sections.

The chain stamp is well under 20 bucks for a year. Not sure who told you it was 27 for a day.

This is the website that list the fees for launching, I spoke to someone at the Fox Waterway and she stated that there is no charge to launch from the state park.
I have not kayaked the Chain....yet.

ok everyone...its Monday so with all of your suggestions it seems like Shabbona is the preferred place for the outing. As it stands now

Location: Shabbona
Time: 7am?
Date: Sun May 15th

If we get a majority of thumbs up then this will be locked in and we can move into who can bring stuff for a small/simple lunch cookout.

There was some ridiculous convenience fee to buy it in the park. It's been a few years, so maybe things have changed.

Be careful out there. No matter what body of water you use, weather conditions should be your number one priority. :(

Hey guys...yeah we can push back to a later date if needed. As the date approaches there are a few tournaments going on plus Hero's On The Water events this weekend to help raise money which myself and a few other forum members are the founding chapter members (separate post to come about this).

To be honest there are tournaments throughout the summer so for anyone not fishing them (like myself) we can always just set a new date and go.

I haven't stopped by this site for a while so I guess I'm late for the party. Hastings Lake, in Lindenhurst is a nice yak friendly lake. It's a forest preserve lake so access is easy for everyone. I did like Sterling and would like to fish it again under better conditions. I would stay away from the Chain because of the power boat traffic, I fish it but I'm very careful about location, I usually stick to no wake zones.
