Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, black crappie, bluegill and white bass at Newton Lake in Illinois.
Newton Lake, IL

This 1,700 acre lake is located next to the Newton Power Station in southeast Illinois. Newton Lake offers a variety of fishing opportunities as well as other boating activities. Pontoon boats, fishing boats, pleasure boats, kayaks and canoes are all welcome, but a 25-horsepower limit is in force for all boats (boats with larger engines are allowed on the lake but must be powered with alternative motors). Bass, catfish and white bass are the primary target of anglers, but crappie and bluegill are often cooperative as well. With 52 miles of shoreline there is plenty of water for everyone to fish. Access to the shoreline for bank fishing is somewhat limited. Try areas around boat ramps or the Newton Lake Conservation Area.
