    When I lived in Illinois, most people I have talked to speak highly of Mill Creek for its crappie fishing. I havent heard anything good about the catfishing there.

    I've heard mixed reviews. A lot of people are pissed because they have raised the daily pass price to a point where you are almost as well off buying a season pass.

    I've heard good blue gill and crappie towards the south end of the lake. There are a bunch of submerged tree stumps. I have also heard of good channel cat fishing in the 3-7 lbs range. This is a very deep lake. You will see what I mean. Regardless, its a beautiful lake. Very scenic so i'm sure you would enjoy.

    Good luck!

    i fish mill creek a lot. i like fishing north of the bridge in the trees at night. there's another cove with flooded timber at the end of "seven mile branch". there's an old flooded logging road down there too. buy one of the lake maps at the gatehouse. they earmark all this stuff. there's a lot of catfish in this lake though. about any cove with a moss line will suffice. i use stick bobbers adjusted from 4 to 10 foot. let it drift against the mossline...
