Dupage River exploration 9/12
 
Well I want to be creative with this post. I headed out south of I80 today to explore new lands of the Dupage River. I started around 7am and finished around noon. The fish total was countless Dink smallies but always fun. The biggest ran about 12-13 inches and had many of them. Here is the Ariel shot of where I was working the river at

This is what I was using... my TFO 5wt armed with my Ross Reel and Sharkskin line.

I headed up stream to my spot where I wanted to start fishing down stream at and here is a few pics

I started here and made my way down stream and caught endless smallies... I was getting tired fast working all the dinks..

I live in a town that the dupage river runs through and never knew that it was a good smallie fishery! Thanks for informing. Know any other hotspots youre willing to divulge in the area?
