Wabash River  Fly Fishing (Illinois) Map
COUNTRY: US   STATE: Illinois   (Printer Version)
TITLE: Wabash River
NOTES: The Wabash River has numerous fly fishing sites. The Wabash River starts near Fort Recovery, Ohio, and flows generally southwest for nearly 500 miles through Indiana and Illinois before the confluence with the Ohio River near Shawneetown. The only river impedement is Huntington Dam in Indiana. The Illinois section starts near Darwin and runs 200 miles. There are several major tributaries in Illinois, including the Embarrass River, White River and Little Wabash River. When fly fishing the Wabash River, you can expect to find striped bass, smallmouth bass and spotted bass. Smallmouth bass are found in the upper 100 miles of the river and spotted bass throughout it's length. Late summer and fall are the best time to seek black bass when river levels are low and the water clarity is improved. The white, striped and hybrid striped bass can be found throughout the river's length but are more numerous in the lower 100 miles. Best times to seek these fish seem to be in the late spring early summer times around the numerous sandbars found in the lower river and near the fast water riffle areas.
