Default Aux Sable Creek and MY spot on the Dupage

Jake and I headed out in search of Smallmouths... we came up with only one. But we started our day in the Aux Sable Creek. Water was clear and low. We had plans to head to Mazon but I was at a bar last night and talked to a guy. He showed me some monster smallies; I asked him where he pulled them out and he said the Aux Sable Creek near the I&M.

So that made me choose that place. Enjoy the pics

You are so lucky! I took these pictures on April 14, four days ago. The first two are of a creek I like to fish in and the big water is a nearby river that is just opening up. It was snowing really hard all day;

Just a quick question - have you ever fished the I&M canal? Any success?

Yes,
The Super Duper is an amazing smallie factory. I will have 50 fish days on the river. The key is location and my home made flies
