Default Kankakee river Illinois

Hey guys I need some help again. I have to go take my Illinois state paramedic test up by Rockford Illinois. So my wife and I are planning on driving up the day before, and I will have a couple days off with how I am scheduled. I had search online for state parks, the kankakee river popped up. I was wondering how easy it is to wade fish, and if it is worth stopping at and maybe spending a day or two. I have never been there before so I am looking for as much help as possiable. I will probably fish the state park area. Thank you for all the help.

The Kank is not near Rockford. There is the Kishwackee and the Rock rivers. The Kank is way south of Rockford. You can fish and wade the Kishwaukee River for Smallies and such. I'm by no means an expert on these fisheries but the guys at can provide you a lot of advice.
