well once again the possibility of a clinton lake get togather has been addressed. its a 5000+ acre horseshoe shaped cooling lake located 9 miles or so east of clinton lake and 30 min from bloomington. i fish this lake frequently and it is my primary waters fished. there is an abundant catfish population and with little effort fish can be caught. good shad stock easily caught on and at ramps for bank fishing a hot water area accessible by boat and closly by bank. idnr maintained camping with a bar and grill located 2 miles from camping and a bait and grill waterside. this would be a spring get togather like mayish. anyone intrested post here. fishes in lake include flatheads, channels, hybred stripers, walleye, white bass crappie white and black, bass and muskie as well as carp, bluegill and most other native species in illinois. its a first come first serve area but if we decide to go through with it i can take deposits for 1 night stay and go early on a fri morn and pay for sights. ill have to double check but sure its feasable. located 9 miles from clinton were hotel accomidations are available. ive boated and fished the lake for 15 years and have success and filled the order for annual fish fry at my home for 20 floks. it is one of the top catfish lakes in illinois. a flooded creek channel runs the length and shown on maps. hence channel cats. its a regular perfect channel lake with a consistant current and warm water for great catfish breeding. post here if intrested in coming.
