Planning to fish the Fox near St. Charles this weekend -- fly and spinning. Any recommendations on location, bait, etc?
Thanks, Mars

Follow up to my trip: Fox Rover was high and fast. On Saturday, July 30, only got results with a Gander Mountain orange salt crawfish. Lost a lot of tackle in the rocks. Had four smallies on, landed two small ones. Nice size smallie hooked but jumped off once out of the water...maybe 2-3 pounds. Smallies were holding very close to the rocky west bank at the Herrington Inn. Another fisherman wading the river with heavy mono line wrapped around an empty plastic soda bottle caught five very nice cats -- all 18-in or better using chicken livers on a very simple rig. On Sunday, went to DuPage River just south of Naperville. Tried spinners, plastics, surface plugs but no success -- did get a few bites on the crawfish. Landed one small largemouth on a white popper fly in the backwaters. Very hot at mid-day, and not much action in the water.

Regards to all -- help keep the Fox clean and healthy!
