Fishing report 1-20-2013
Craig Sterrett
News Editor

Anglers who wish they could say they'd "gone fishin'," are more likely just "a wishin'."

Sorry for borrowing the old "Sportsman's Friend" TV show theme song, but there's not much to report — at least in the Illinois Valley. Ice is too thin on lakes and ponds, and cold wind is keeping everybody off the river.

Even the bald eagles weren't fishing during Winter Wilderness Weekend at Starved Rock State Park, because the river's not iced up. (I've been seeing some along the Hennepin Canal, which had plenty of shad for them to eat this year, and I've been seeing some along roads, feeding on carrion, opportunistic as they are).

Nope, instead of fishing, I've been daydreaming a bit about fishing and thinking about different things to try next year and to buy this winter.
