Lake of Egypt

This power plant lake is best known for its abundant numbers of largemouth bass and crappie. At the warm water discharge end, it never freezes. This lake warms earlier than the other lakes and (weather permitting) can produce great crappie fishing in February.

Tips for Todd Gessner Outdoors

Requirements – Anglers must obtain and have with you the appropriate Illinois licenses and stamps.  Both can be purchased here.

Meals – When fishing a lake where lunch is available lakeside, you can stop for Dutch treat lunch or, you will need to pack a lunch if you choose to stay on the water or no lakeside food service is available. Connect with your guide beforehand to see if a packed lunch is crucial with what lake you’re fishing.
