Crab Orchard Lake

The fishing in Crab Orchard Lake is often rated up there in the top ten lakes in IL. You will find big bass, really nice catfish, awesome panfish, and ok striped bass. Early in the fishing season try fishing the shallow east end of the lake, shallow bays, feeder creeks, and boat docks. The rest of the season fish drop offs, weed lines, fallen trees, and near the shad schools. I would recommend fishing with crank baits, live bait, spinners, jigs, and soft plastics. Good luck fishing!
