Lithia Fishing Guide Service

With Pro Ken Wilson

Welcome to Lithia Fishing Guide Service!



Ken Wilson has been a professional licensed fishing guide for over 20 years exclusively on Lake Shelbyville.  Ken has fished the Lake from its inception and has guided clients from all parts of the United States.

Ken offers guided fishing trips year-round at Lake Shelbyville and Smallmouth Bass in the Kaskaskia River Basin below the Spillway and also at three nearby power plant lakes for some great winter fishing. Guided fishing trips allow you to enjoy the day, catch your limit and learn more about fishing from the best fishing guide on the lake and river basin.

When fishing with Ken you will be fishing out of a fully-rigged 2002 Ranger boat with a 115 Mercury outboard. This boat is specially designed for crappie fishing and walleye trolling.  Ken fishes for Crappie year round, Walleye from mid-May through mid-July, White Bass from mid-May to November, when the surface temperatures reach 75 degrees or over, in the summer. 

Ken is a weekly contributor for the Chicago Sun Times fishing report and is a monthly host for the radio talk show, “Let’s Go Fishing” with Al Crooker.


A guided fishing trip for crappie is $225.00 to split between two anglers.  For walleye and white bass, it’s $225.00 to split between two anglers and $50 extra for a third person.  All consist of a full 8-hour day out of a fully-rigged 19-foot Ranger boat.

Specialty Guided Services!

We also guide on local power plant lakes in the winter months and do river float trips for smallmouth bass and walleye in the Kaskaskia river below the Dam.  Please call ahead on the river trips because of changing water levels.

All you need to bring is something to eat, drink, rain gear (if weather requires) and a valid Illinois Fishing License available at Lithia Springs Marina’s Ship Store.

What's Included in your trip!

Day and weekend fees include fishing rod, tackle, bait, and the cleaning of your limit as long as the fish cleaning stations are open and operable.
