Fishing for largemouth bass, rainbow trout, bluegill, redear sunfish and yellow perch at Devils Kitchen Lake in Illinois.

A medium size lake at the southern tip of Illinois, Devils Kitchen Lake offers several species for fishing as well as boating (with a 10 HP limit), swimming, and picnicking. Bass, trout, perch and sunfish are just waiting to be caught. Located within Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge, there is limited access to lodging, dining or shopping. However, the lake is scenic and tranquil with 24 miles of shoreline and lots of places to fish, including areas of standing timber and brush. The better fishing options are from a boat, but there is ample shoreline fishing available as well, including a handicap fishing pier near the dam.
