    Noah, You can get the information in the Illinois Regulations booklet.....which is also on line at: http://dnr.state.il.us/fish/Digest/index.htm

    Sounds to me like you are refering to Horseshoe lake near Olive Branch. Thats the only one I can think of that is near Mounds. Little Grassy is further north and west of Crab Orchard. Both of these mentioned are limited to 9.9 motors. Mickey, a rugular here is the live handbook on lakes in this area. Send him a PM if he doesn't see your thread.

    Noah I'm not sure where you are at. If it is located in the Crab Orchard refuge area you are probably referring to Little Grassy Lake. If your are down near Mounds I'm not familiar with that lake. Little grassy Lake is a great lake to fish. It has a 9.9 hp motor limit. Many species of fish including cat is available.

    Noah my guess would be the Cache River. It runs through Golden Lilly under US 51. It dumps into the Ohio River between Urbandale and Mound City.
