ILLINOIS IS A GOOD
STATE FOR FINNY TRIBE
The great state of Illinois is so for
tunate, as to have within its borders
some of the most extensive natural
propjig:itie and nursery grounds for
fish that can be found in any com
monwealth in the United States. The
Illinois river may be said to have its
source a short distance east of Mor
ris, in Grundy county, where the Kan
kakee and Desplaines rivers unite the
waters from various tributaries, ami
it receives also the outpour of the
great drainage canal. In the bottom
lands along the Illinois are many
lakes and sloughs that are filled with
water several times each year, when
the river overflows its banks, and
these lakes furnish vast spawning
grounds for adult fishes and excep
tional nurseries for the fry. These
natural provisions are utilized by the
state. ILsh commissioner in replenish
ing other waters. During the season
when normal conditions prevail many
thousands of small fishes are seined
and shipped for stock purposes, the
supply being practically inexhausti
ble and the number that may be tak
en limited only by the length of time
during which conditions may be fa
vorable for collection each season and
the cost of doing the work.
The Illinois tish commission owns
anil maintains a steamer, formerly
named the Keindeer, but since the hull
was rebuilt and the steamer was en
larged, about one year ago, the coin
mission is enabled to perform,
through the season of navigation, ef
ficient work in fish protection, and
also in fish propagation through the
utilization of nature's supply in the
breeding and nursery grounds adja
cent to the principal waterways of the
state. When periodical high waters
swell the flow of the Illinois river it
backs up into all these breeding lakes
and millions of fishes of all sizes and
varieties found in the river run into
the side waters.
There Ihese lish are imprisoned
when the river falls, and when hard
freezing weather conies on during the
winter in the shallowest waters many
thousands who have survived a heated
term during low wafer in the summer
time invariably would perish the ex
tremes of cold and heat being alike
fatal to. young fishes were it not for
the work performed by the commis
sion. The forepart of the season, and
during the time when netting is pro
hibited on the Illinois river the steam
er is engaged in protective work. The
commission's boat, the Illinois, has
powerful engines anil is very swift, be
ing the fastest craft, on the river, en
abling Capt. G. T. Williams and his
crew to coer long distances in a
very short time. The river is parol!.".!
constantly during the season, the
crew being ery alert to discover
would-be violators or. 1 lie law against
netting. This eflicicnt service has
gratified the commission and resulted
in a s.n isi him orv increase oi ousiness
for the practical men engaged in com
mercial fishery on the Illinois river.
As in other waters, the "penny wise
and pound foolish" policy to which
some fishermen have been addieleil has
been fully demonstrated, and many of
that class have come to recognize
the benefits of adequately enforced
Despite the manner in which the Il
linois tish commission has been handi
capped in the work of collecting
fishes during the past season, there is
no cause for discouragement. The
fishes remain in the Illinois river and
connect iug waters, and millions more
will be added by the increase the
next spawning season. With the pre
valence of normal conditions on the
river during the coming year, the em
ployes of till' commissi!. n should be
able to break any previous record for
the work of these waters, and thereby
largely augment the distribution of
