OK.. I cant find any info about this creek all I know is that the state rock bass record was caught there in 1987. I want to hit this up wade style and fly style. I want to know if I have any takers... PM me if you want to go . But I need to know if anyone has been there. Today I was bored and went for a ride There was a guy there using floats with a roach on it and had a stringer of Walleyes.. Aux sable emptys into the IL River near Morris so talking to a guy there he was telling me he has caught PIKE, Crappie, LG and Smallmouth, and Rock Bass., and Carp. Apparently the more north you go its more of a run off for farms anything north or I80. He was telling me when the IL river is high the fish move in and then when it gets low the fish get stuck in the creek. I have only fished this a few time north of 80 and only got a few rock bass. The guy also was telling me about a cemetery down the road where its haunted. When fishing he says at night you hear crying and people running in the woods, so on that note I want to go with someone.. lol... but here are some pictures I took today. I know the creek was high but looks like a great fly rod area. Also never seen an aqueduct before it was neat.

Aux Sable Creek
From a message board I found
The creek dumps into the Illionis river in Morris, Ill. This is a great creek to fish. It's slow moving and easy to canoe. There are smallmouth but they are not thick and most are small. The Aux Sable gave up the largest Rock bass I have ever caught. It went just under 4 lbs. I later found that fish,if I had brought to certified scales,would have set the state record. I caught it on a nightcrawler under the old bridge on Lorenzo road. It is in the bend of the road about 3 miles up towards Morris from Heidike Lake. I love this creek, but it floods very easily and takes weeks to recover. I have caught several large Carp and a few good cats(Flathead & Channel). I have gone back several times to attempt to re-catch my lost Rock bass but have not been able to come close to the size. On a side note, be very carefull of the vegation around the creek, I got a horrible dose of Poison Oak that I must of had wack me in the face. I ended up in the emergency room with poison oak in my lungs. I was not able to breath well for over a week, and my face swelled like the Elefant mans. I know this is a long entry, But the Aux deserves full credit for being a great little creek.
