Devils Kitchen Lake near Crainville, Illinois
You can find good fishing for almost all the fish species in Devils Kitchen Lake 810 acres of clear water. But the bass really shine above all else with a 10 pounder caught almost every year. Early in the season try fishing the shallow back bays, the dam, and near fallen trees. The rest of the year it's a good idea to try fishing drop offs, rocks, weed lines, the dam, and fallen trees. I would try using crank baits, spinners, live bait, and soft plastics in natural colors. Good luck fishing!
