Thanks for the information and the link, Softhackle! And for stirring up some memories! I recognize the Fox and DuPage rivers, as well as the towns of St. Charles, Batavia, et al. I lived in Carol Stream as a kid back in the early 60s. I remember my dad taking us fishing to Pratt's Wayne Woods. I imagine it's changed a lot since then. But it's good to know there are places with access. Let's hope the snow is long gone by then. It should stay light until 8:00 or 8:30 in May, so I should be able to get a couple of hours of casting time in the evenings while I'm there. What do you recommend for tackle?
