Default Moving to Quincy

I will be moving to Quincy, Il in a couple of months. With the Mississippi right there, I suspect I will do some of my fishing there. However, I have never been a river fisherman, except for the Missouri river at either Chamberlain or Pierre, SD. There doesn't appear to be much in common between the two.
I would like to hear from anyone who regularly fishes the Mississippi River in the general area of where I am moving to.
Thanks,
John

I have fished upstream from Quincy at Burlington a time or two, and farther up at Dubuque several times. Don't know how much the river changes between those locations and Quincy.

Wing-dams can hold lots of fish at times, current breaks are almost always fish-holding areas.

Jigs, crankbaits, and three-way rigs(Dubuque Rigs)are the most popular and productive.

I would think sauger would rival walleyes for numbers.

Let us know what you find out.

Best Fishes,

Bob Jensen

I frequently fish Mississippi Pool 13 which is two pools north of Quincy. The river is a great fishery, at least Pool 13 is. You can fish the wing dams for Walleye, or head back into the numerous off channels and lakes for tremendous Bass and Pike action. It's by far my favorite place to go and very low pressure.

Living in Quincy gives you the option of fishing Pool 21 or 22. You have a lot more launch facilities on the Illinois side of Pool 21, but not a long drive to Iowa side Pool 22 launches. I attatched links to all the Corp of Engineers maps for those pools so you have a better idea of the expanse of water we're talking. Not just the river, but chutes, sloughs, lakes, feeder rivers and creek, etc.
