Lake Shelbyville

Lake Shelbyville

Lake Shelbyville has it all!  A beautiful 11,000 acre lake that was formed by damming up the Kaskaskia river, just about every kind of freshwater game fish resides here.

The average depth sets at 19ft and there are several boat ramps for easy lake access. Bass fishing is the primary target, hosting numerous tournaments throughout the year but that’s just the tip of the ice berg.  Walleye are a favorite here, Muskie are absolute giants, and the catfish are aggressive.  The crappie fishing is excellent and bluegill are bountiful though smaller in size.  The delicious Sauger has improved dramatically, and there are even guided Buffalo carp guided trips on occasion.  With several lodging options and some very experienced fishing guides it’s impossible to go home disappointed!  To find out more about the lake itself click here.
