Forest Preserves of Cook County Prepares for Trout Fishing Season

Nearly 7,000 pounds of fish will be added to fishing lakes

The Forest Preserves of Cook County is pleased to announce the 2015 fall inland trout fishing season, opening on Saturday, Oct. 17, at Busse Reservoir–North Pool (Elk Grove Village), Axehead Lake (Park Ridge), Belleau Lake (Park Ridge), Horsetail Lake (Palos Park) and Green Lake (Calumet City).

The Forest Preserves will be purchasing and stocking approximately 1,000 pounds of rainbow trout for Horsetail Lake, while the Illinois Department of Natural Resources will be providing and stocking 1,255 pounds for Axehead Lake, 1,000 pounds for Belleau Lake, 2,900 pounds for Busse Reservoir and 666 pounds for Green Lake. These are catchable sized rainbow trout, in the 1/2 – 1 lb. size range.

The Forest Preserves’ trout lakes will be closed to all fishing from Monday, Oct. 12, until sunrise on Saturday, Oct. 17, allowing the trout to disperse throughout the lakes prior to opening. As part of the IDNR’s stocking program, fishing for and possession of any trout is illegal from Oct. 1 until 5 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17.

Once the season opens, there is a five trout per day creel limit with no size restrictions. No more than two lines per person with no more than two hooks per line may be used.

A valid Illinois sport fishing license with an Inland Trout Stamp is required for anglers 16 years of age and older. An Illinois sport fishing license is not required for Illinois residents who are disabled and have a State of Illinois disabled I.D. card showing a Class 2 or 2A disability or a Veterans Disability Card, and Illinois residents who are on active military duty and are home on leave.
