Guide To Fishing At Anderson Lake
AKA: Anderson Reservoir
Occasionally subject to overfilling with flood waters, Anderson Lake is a nice destination for boating and fishing when water levels cooperate. This 1,130-acre, freshwater lake is located in the west-central part of IL, five miles southwest of Havana.
Fishing from the bank is popular here, and anglers can access most of the 9 miles of shoreline to do so. Don't expect to find rental boats, but there are two boat launch ramps and docks. Bluegill, crappie and bass and catfish provide plenty of action during the season, and ice fishing is popular for crappie and sunfish in winter.
