Fishing Williamson County, Ill.

The Great Lakes of Williamson County Illinois

Williamson County is the premier destination for fishermen in Southern Illinois. We attract professional and amateur fishermen alike with our popular lakes, annual fishing tournaments and year-round fishing opportunities. From the well-known 7,000-acre Crab Orchard Lake and 2,300-acre Lake of Egypt to the 30-acre Arrowhead Lake and everything in between, fishermen relish in the abundance of largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, channel catfish and other popular species being caught here.

Three of our great lakes are within the boundary of the 44,000-acre Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge and include the popular Crab Orchard Lake, Devil’s Kitchen Lake and Little Grassy Lake. In addition, Lake of Egypt, three community lakes and a variety of ponds offer additional settings for outdoor enjoyment.
