Pittsfield Lake – A Hidden Jewel! (Only 17 miles from the lodge!)
You can take a lunch and go for a beautiful picnic; this lake is even great for fishing. Enjoy this 200 acre lake surrounded by 480 acres of recreational land that the public can use. This lake has great crappie fishing in the spring and is also stocked with Bass, Bluegill, Walleye, and Stripers. http://www.pittsfieldil.org/community/recreation/pittsfield-city-lake
Fishing at Pittsfield Lake is self guided, so bring your fishing poles and tackle. There is a bait shop in Pittsfield.
