While not usually considered a top fishing destination, the State of Lincoln has a few major waterways snaking through out the state for some fantastic warm and cold-water fishing. On the West, the Mississippi watershed is full of fantastic bass, carp, and Northern water. To the East, the beautiful Lake Michigan swarming with salmon and steelhead. In between, large waterways, such the Fox, DuPage, Des Plaines, Kankakee, and Illinois rivers.</p>
<p>While many of the local guides specialize on either Lake Michigan or the surrounding day-trip water (Driftless or Michigan), you'll find just as many taking local clients out on day trips sight fishing for some fantastic catches.
