Hi Everyone,

Relatively new to fishing. I am living in Villa Park and want to make it a goal to find a body of water in the area that I can call a fishing hole. Looking forward to swapping stories and getting advice.

Thanks,

KP

Welcome! I used to live in Villa Park. In no particular order...and within a couple miles of Villa Park...

1. Westmore woods (intersection of St Charles and Westmore)...try wacky rigs for bass.
2. Cricket Creek (off 83 next to the holiday inn)....throw soft plastics near drainage areas for bass.

I can testify to catching decent largemouth at both these locations.

If you are willing to travel a little further... Blackwell forest preserves. Although shore fishing opportunities are limited due to heavy vegetation near shoreline. Would be great if you had a canoe or a kayak.

You are also not far from the dupage river, but if you are new to fishing I would start with ponds....just my opinion. I know some people probably started on rivers and did just fine. I'll let others chime in.
