Peoria Lake, Illinois


Peoria Lake lies on the Illinois River between the cities of Peoria and East Peoria. It's popular for boating, waterskiing, and other water sports. It isn't, however, a good place to fish. According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Peoria Lake has lost a significant amount of its fish habitat due to sedimentation, which creates conditions that are unfavorable for aquatic plants.
