Nothing beats the sublime beauty of a desert lake, its azure waters shimmering dreamily against the golden hues around it, green grasses waving invitingly in the breeze, beckoning to thirsty animals and weary travelers.
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.
