Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Catfish, Bluegill, White Bass,
Yellow Bass, Hybrid Striped Bass, Walleye, Freshwater Drum, Sunfish.
Comments: LaSalle lake is an Exelon power plant cooling
lake. Not your typical lake at all. The entire shore line
is Rip Rap (rocks) and there is virtually no vegetation.
If you plan to fish from shore bring a bicycle. There are11
total miles of shore line and very little area can be covered
without some form of transportation. Boat ramps are available
for launching at no charge. There is no shade at all so bring
a hat and/or umbrella
for a brief respite when needed and sunscreen! There are shoreline
markers every 100 feet so ask other fisherman where the fish
can be a lot of fun to fish. The fish have a great forage base
on which to feed and the warm temps of the water throughout
the winter months makes for some large fish. For the shore fisherman,
the idea is to keep moving until you locate active bass. This
can mean a lot of walking/biking, but will greatly increase
your chances of catching fish.
Line: Bring a bike if shore fishing or some serious walking
shoes, don't beat one spot to death - find the fish, bring a good
variety of tackle, and leave the ultra-light at home, this lake
has BIG fish.
