Water levels 2.30, clarity 18”-24” green stain, windy with SE gusts up to 30mph+, water temps 45 and sunny. Bank fished for 3hrs and fished 3 different locations. Threw a thin 3” straight worm from BPS on a 1/8oz keeperhook with 10lb stren. 6 smallmouth from 12”-18”. Fish were located in dead slack break areas. Depth 3ft-4ft on a slow dead stick at times retrieve. Bite was sluggish and soft. Falling temps, levels and increasing clarity put the bite down. Still good to get out for a few hours. Next week looks like a warming trend with warmer night time temps.

Thanks for the detailed report.  NE Illinois?  Fox River by any chance?

Great report Thanks for sharing the information that’s what fishing sites are supposed to be about sharing information to make us all better anglers. Hoping to get out Wednesday for the first time in the boat this year and would be Happy to post a report like that. I hope this season is full of fish for you.
