Smallmouths in Southern Illinois?


Recommended Posts

Anyone know about possible smallmouths in Southern Illinois?  I've asked around and am always directed to Arkansas, Kentucky or Tennessee.

 

Would be nice to know if there were really any here more local.

None in Southern Illinois (except one small creek I shall not name).  Best bet is to cross over to Missouri near Cape Girardeau or Perryville for creek fish, or head to Kentucky lake. 

At one time they were stocking Kinkaid near Murphysboro, and I caught a few to 19.5", but that lake just has too much competition from LMB and didn't appear to have any successful spawns. Not sure if they are still doing that.
