Fishing

The river offers anglers a chance at catching a wide range of fish. From Catfish, Shovelnose Sturgeon to Largemouth Bass and Walleye, make sure you have your fishing license before hitting the water to reel in the big one. To get a fishing license, or find out where to get one in Illinois, visit the Illinois Department of Natural Resources website.
