I'm from Iowa City and I fish with a guy from East Moline. We fish the LeClaire Canal and the Hennepin at the Rock on the IL side. The Lock and Dam 14 Recreation Complex has access to Smith Island which will give you good access to the canal and to the lagoon on the other side. Both hold lots of carp. The Hennepin has lots of carp as well, maybe not as big as those Mississippi carp, but we have pulled a couple of mirrors out of there. If you ever want to get together, I work the fishing counter at Fin and Feather in Iowa City, stop in, I work till 5 Monday through Friday, and we'll go get some 20's at MacBride.
