Let's talk about the McHenry County Conservation District. These guys are buying all of this land with are money, and most of it we can not even step foot on with out the chance of getting a
ticket for trespassing.I use to go fishing at the old pallet place[Route 20 by the Boone county line bye the way a fisherman's paradise]. And now that thy[MCCD]have bought the land no one is allowed on the property, except for maybe employees and their friends and family that enjoy fishing.Hell, you can't even hardly fish the Kishwaukee river without being run out by MCCD police.

I hear that. We wish that was the only spot they comendered. Look at the "trail between Marengo and Union. CLOSED FOR THE SEASON....Ummmm it's a paved trail, why isn't it open all year round. If I rode my tandem bike with my sweety from Union to Marengo and was caught before they said it was open, I would get a ticket. Now that's a fine way to impress you girl. Ticketed on a 70 degree day in March for riding a trail along the RR tracks. In the Union / Marengo are , there is 7 unopened unaccessable lands we have paid for. The one you addressed as the worst of the lot.

The river can always be fished out of a watercraft. Only the lucky Indians can restrict your passageway along navigatable waterways. So grab a floater and cast away.

mike wasn't asking where to fish. Being an avid fisher He knows where to go. Just like the jackazzes from the MCCD TJOHN misdirects telling you where to go instead of answering the simple question. Why is this land still unaccesable.

Dan? not even close. I got a new laptop and had to re-enter the favs lists and forgot anout this site, so keep guessing. If you guess right i will tell you. And look at TJOHN telling us where to fish instead of addressing the issue of OPENING OUR land they stole. Disband the MCCD and there crooks. Tell that fat Detrick to get a real job. bully with a badge lmao a conservation badge at best.
