Hunters, anglers and birders can converge at Emiquon

October 26, 2012 at 04:23 PM

The State Journal-Register

At The Nature Conservancy’s Emiquon Preserve across the Illinois River from Havana, hunters, anglers and bird-watchers all will get a chance to pursue their favorite recreation this fall.

Fishermen are reminded that on days when waterfowl hunting is allowed, Thompson Lake is closed until noon.

Hunting is allowed Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings until noon.

Bird-watchers and walkers have been making good use of the visitor access area just off Illinois 78/97.

Tharran Hobson of The Nature Conservancy said 300 cars a week are using the visitor area.

That number includes anglers putting in boats at the ramp and people using the area to walk and bird-watch.

Hobson said he’s seen migrating terns pass through include nearly all species found in Illinois such as Caspian, common, Forster’s, least and black terns.

Anglers can look forward to some good-sized crappies.

Annual fall surveys conducted in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources revealed some 15- and 16-inch crappies, Hobson said.

“It was amazing,” he said.

Hunters will be able to participate in a special survey of hunting experiences conducted by the Illinois Natural History Survey.

The survey will track hunters throughout the season.
