What are some places amongst the Fox Chain that offers a decent place to shore fish? I've seen some reports of walleye and other fishing being caught on shore and would appreciate any general info that might get me a fish on the end of the line. Thanks y'all!

Shore fishing the chain is tough from an access point as far as I know. I would love to have someone correct me on this!

Your best bet would be to rent a row boat for the day and fish where you want. No problem. I know its not cheap, but that may be the best way for you to go.

If you get down to the dam in st charels there is some decent small mouth along the west bank and in batavia the orental gardens offer some decent shore fishing for crapie.

Look at the highway maps for the area. My brother used to fish under the
Route 12 bridge. I'm sure there are a few other bridges by the Chain.

The Fox has some great shore fishing and wading options. I prefer to fish from the Yorkville dam to Silver Springs State park. I have caught many walleye , small mouth bass and cats in this area. Also from the Dayton dam to the moth where the Fox and Illinois rivers join with the same fish and a white bass in this area also. it is a ways from the north burbs but a great way to learn and explore the river.

Thanks NOILAngler. Looking at the dam in Dayton, that looks like a great location to hook into a variety of fish. Are white bass pretty prevalent in that area or is that mostly a spring time event that occurs during their run?

I've only caught them in the spring after the spring floods. It can be real tricky and crowded at times. It's also a great spot to watch the skydivers from Sky dive Chicago as its just up the road. Follow the river south and there are several other spots to fish including the mouth. have caught some really big cats there.

The State park has some very good access to the Fox River. Check out the "walking path" in the state park you can go all the way to the 173 bridge and find some good fishing.

rt 12, just before the bridge, going north, the land behind the houses is not theirs, I went to the village and they have access to put a pier,but the land is the towns and you can fish.
