Crab Orchard Lake

Crab Orchard Lake

At just a hair under 7,000 acres Crab Orchard lake is the largest lake in the Crab Orchard Wildlife Refuge.
With an average depth at 9ft and a max depth at only 25ft you may think the fishing would lag behind, THINK AGAIN!

Several species can be caught here throughout the year. The lake is rich in catfish (flathead, channel, blue cat), bluegill, and crappie. The pride and joy of this lake lies in the bass fishing. There are only a handful of tournaments held here each year but they tend to be the biggest draws in the state. This could have something to do with possibility of weighing in a 25lbs five fish limit!  Most anglers fish the bountiful crab grass which the lake is famous for.  If it’s a quiet beautiful weekend you’re after book a cabin, call a guide and make some memories!  The lake is regulated under federal laws and you can learn more by clicking here!
