    Isn't silver lake in Highland? If so.... I think it requires a special fishing permit for that lake. Could be mistaken.

    I think Brian's right. My old boat had a Highland Silver Lake usage sticker on it. I've heard there are some decent channel cats there, but there is/was a fish consumption advisory in effect.

    cross one arm of it all the time from I-70 and I have never seen anyone in a boat never really thought on it till now. Couldn't tell ya? Gov. Bond is a good cat lake just up the road from there. Greenville. Vandalia city is also a good cat lake and has great bank fishing most all of the south side.
