Fishing at Lake Shelbyville Expected to Be on Par With Last Year

The weather is getting warmer and many are looking forward to getting out to the various lakes in the area to fish. Many are heading to Lake Shelbyville to do their fishing, however have met mixed results.


Mike Mounts, District Fisheries Biologist with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources said although the number of fish may be down at the lake, the quality of fishing should be there.



Mounts expects the fishing for several different types of fish to either be good, or at least as good as last year. Fisherman have struggled to catch fish early on this year so far however, and the IDNR is unsure why.



Mounts appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our Downtown Shelbyville Studios.
