Chicago firefighters who donned fishing rods for the kids, the late Fred Bear on ‘respect,’ a goldfinch at Little Red Schoolhouse NC, and a commentary on the hours by captured Chinook are among the outdoor Chicago notes and beyond.


Ratings come from Chicago Outdoors and beyond.

WILD OF THE WEEK

Marc Kasick photographed an American goldfinch on Sunday at the Little Red Schoolhouse Nature Center. He used a Nikon D7200, 300mm f4, with a 1.7 teleconverter (roughly a 500mm lens).

WOTW, the celebration of wild stories and photos around Chicago outdoors, takes place most weeks in the special two-page outdoor section of the Sun-Times Sports Saturday.

DALE MAIL BAG

“Ten years ago we would go to Burnham Harbor and catch three or four [Chinook] per person in one evening. Dale Rehus Tweeter

A: Rehus is a famous fisherman, but I think he remembers 20 or 30 years ago. I would love if the Illinois Natural History Survey had data going back decades for September catches per hour of effort for returning chinook.

LARGE NUMBER

5: Firemen on Engine 109 / Truck 32—Chris Nechvatal, Jimmy Johnson, Santiago Alvarez, Ali Abdolazadeh, John Reany– who helped string 150 fishing rods in a pinch two days before Chicago Family Outdoor Day last Saturday.

Some of the fishing rods, strung by Chicago firefighters, for kids on Chicago Outdoor Family Day last weekend.

LAST WORD

“Leave with a good attitude, respecting the wildlife you hunt and the forests and fields in which you walk. Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience. It will purify your soul and make you a better person.

Fred bear, the late legendary bow hunter, with a quote on fredbear-online.com
