The April dinner is Saturday, April 11th. Bring a dish to share with your fellow members. Dinner starts at 6. Then, demonstrate your skill at the shuffleboard table during our friendly tournament. Don’t worry if you don’t have those skills … nobody else does either, but we’ll all have fun trying!
The April member meeting is the following day, Sunday, April 12th, at 10:30.
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources will open the spring trout season on April 4th, just one of the many events listed on the calendar at the IDNR’s website, ifishillinois.org. Learn about where to buy a license, where the hot spots are, what the rules are, how to register your boat, and much more. 2015 licenses are on sale now.
The Illinois River is rated “excellent” for channel cat, sauger, walleye and bass, according to the site.
Watch a video about identifying juvenile Asian carp. You wouldn’t want to use them as a bait fish and spread them to other lakes and streams.

Miss Riverbottom 2015 is scheduled for June 24-28. Mark your calendar!
