Asian carp still a problem on Illinois River
GRANVILLE – It may be six months before the Cabela’s Master Walleye Circuit returns to Spring Valley, but many fishermen have eyes on the waters now, worrying about another fish.
Asian carp have been breeding and feeding their way up the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers for several years, and although they haven’t reached Lake Michigan, their impact is being felt downriver.
“Our experiences with them here go back about seven or eight years,” said Nick Troglio, a Spring Valley Boat Club Board member. “Bill Senica was riding a wave runner and got knocked off the runner by an Asian carp.”
