Saturday under the bridge

I had an early dental appointment this morning.  My dentist is on the other side of the DuPage River's East Branch at Hobson Road from my home.  Why not fish after my appointment?  I packed some nightcrawlers with an ice pack and my already set up to drift 6' bright yellow BPS ultralight and had a little post-dental visit catching for an already warm at 9 AM kinda day on the last Saturday morning in June.

My cheek and half my tongue still numb from the Novocaine from earlier I crawled up the rip-rap and up to the sidewalk.  I caught a few more fish than these but the bass was the biggest of the stop and these gills just were pretty.  I caught a warmouth too.  I love rivers; every one a little different.
