I went out Friday 5/31/19 with my bike. I rode down to the dike between the hot and cool side. I fished for a couple of hours from 12:30 to 2:30. I caught many bluegills and even more catfish. This lake seems to be lightly fished by non-boaters. I only saw 3 groups of shore fisherman along the road and 3 more groups near the parking lot. I used ultra-light with waxworms and an ice fishing jig.

A number of years ago they used to have a bait shop in the parking lot and a truck that would people out on the road. They also would bring bait and food out to you. Unfortunately, the guy did not make it.

While everyone casted the rocks yesterday afternoon, My son and myself decided to troll stick baits over open water flats. 5-10' was the hot zone, anything deeper than 10' produced no strikes. We boated a variety of fish 19 fish in total from 2pm to 6pm. Only 1 catfish that was nice. All the rest were yellow bass, hybrids, both large and smallmouth. He had a blast. The hybrids are violent strikes. Better have your trolling rods drag set or they will snap 10lb test or less before you even get them out of the holder.


Good Luck!

I have been busy so this is a late report from last Saturday.  I took a friend there for his first time and we did well.  The fishing was like opening day back in the late 80's.  A great mixed bag.  We went for what I thought was going to be cats and gills but a lot more were hitting.  We were catching yellow bass up to 13" and I haven't seen those in there since the early 90's.  Started out with an ice jig and wax worms but quickly switched to a white roadrunner and orange 3" twister.  Caught both blue and channel cats, blue gills up to 9", yellow bass, true white bass, hybrids and small mouth.  Never knew what was going to hit next.  Had to be on the windy shore and parallell casting.  All of the striped bass varieties were spewing milt or eggs.   We were shore fishing.

Fished wednesday , 3.28, when the weather was nice. More boats than I have ever seen. Fishing was slow for me but managed a 10 and some smaller ones. The lake is getting infested with small channel cats, just like braidwood. They look defective, not healthy, and they never grow more than my hand. Every cast with the net has a few of these pests inside, and it takes FOREVER to remove them. I have a strong passion for conservation, but these things should not be released, if anyone catches them. I wonder if this is really the actual channel cat species or something else. I have caught hundreds if not a thousand of these over the years and never seen a 1 pound fish. What are the odds.. I wonder if any other fish can eat them, their fins are poisonous..

I fished LaSalle yesterday from about 8:00am to 11:00am.
I wanted to get my boat out and do a shakedown run.

I caught 8 fat, well fed, largemouth {none were over 15" and I lost three others at the boat}...
I also got two 7" smallies.

The North pool was around 75 degrees.
The South pool was around 48 degrees.

I am not familiar with the bass regs on LaSalle because I don't eat bass.
Anyways, There is a prominent notice posted by the launch that says that daily limit for bass {Large and Smallmouth} is one per day and it must be 18" +

ravaneli, thanks for the phone number. It's different than the number I have for reporting poachers. 1-877-236-7529 is what I have.

Keep 'em honest.

Shore report: Rode my bike down to 108 marker and fished for about 90 minutes. Caught two med-sized striped bass. Water temp much cooler than I thought it would be. Was using crawlers. All were released back.
