I have a spot in Wisconsin where I can reliably catch warmouth hook & line, but you'd better check their regulations, because I seem to remember that you can't bring game fish home for your aquarium even if they were caught legally by hook & line. I might be wrong, so read through the regulations and see what you can find. I've netted juvenile warmouth at the southern tip of Illinois, but that's awfully far from you.

Both show in your area. As in Illinois they must be caught using hook and line but you probably already know that.

I would imagine you could find these fish by staying on the Iowa side at Massey Marina or some other nearby boat launch.

Old thread but I essentially have the same question. I am looking for Rock bass in the Cook County Chicago/Illinois area. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. I am also wondering if Rock Bass can coexist peacefully with Red-fin Pickerel in a 120 gallon tank.

Rock Bass are in many of the streams and lakes around here. You should be able to find them without too much trouble in most creeks that feed into the Fox River in Kane or Kendall counties. Likewise most lakes along the southern edge of Wisconsin (Elizabeth Lake in Twin Lakes, Kenosha County, for example) and on the IL side of the line (such as the Fox Chain of Lakes).
