LaSalle Lake: Opening hour

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Jeff ``Woody'' Roberts and I had one of those once in a lifetime hours opening morning at LaSalle Lake.


That's Woody with one of the two or three biggest hybrids we caught.

The first hour was unbelievable. We had 25 largemouth and hybrids, all between 2 and 7 pounds, by 8:15.

My first cast at 7:13, while Woody putzed, produced this.


It was that kind of morning.

In March, the lake is open Wednesday through Sunday. Hours are 6 a.m. to sunset.

Click here for site info, such as directions from IDNR:

Go west on I-80 to the Seneca exit. Go south through the town of Seneca across the Illinois River Bridge on Rte #170 to the flashing yellow light at the Mazon/Grand Ridge Blacktop. Turn right onto the Blacktop and go about two and a half miles. The Fish & Wildlife Area entrance will be on the right.
