My buddy Angel and I wanted to hit the Fox up before I leave for California, we decided to meet at my house and head to the Fox. I contacted a few people of the Forum and combined their advice, planning on hitting the Fox in Batavia, Illinois and park hopping south to end up in Montgomery if we had the time.
We were fishing south of an island park right next to some kind of water treatment plant, it smelled a little like feces but down stream it looked better.
There were a lot of cool looking feeder creeks, some were fishable some weren't, I didn't get any hits on any but in a deep one I spooked something when my lure hit the water.
A closer look.
He cast to the same spot and caught this little guy.
Further down was a rocky stretch, I cast towards a pool and pulled out this red eye.
Most of the fish were this size, got him off a salt n' pepper blue pearl grub on a 1/16oz white jig head.
The fox treated us well, I wish i could spend a lot more time on this river.
