Chicago area - mid-November

I'm going to be in the Chicago area in the 12th and 13th and I was wondering if I would be close enough to any fishing that would make it worthwhile to pack a rod and reel. I'll be in the Rockford area.

You will be 1 1/2 hours northwest of Chicago and about the same distance SW from Milwaukee(up Rt. 43)...

The Milwaukee River may be your closest option if you want to fish a 2 hander for for crackpipes, sewage, etc... and hope for rain between now and then..all the WI tribs are low.

Drive up the coast another hour and there are more options...Sheboygan, etc..

Do a search on the WI DNR site and there are pdf maps of the river access points out there.
