When planning your next lake vacation, consider these four tips for making your trip to the lake as ecologically thrifty as you can while still having lots of fun.
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.
