Braidwood Lake, IL – Braidwood Lake Fishing Season Opens with Safety Reminder


Share post:

Braidwood Lake, IL – Braidwood Lake welcomes anglers as the fishing season kicks off on March 1st, highlighting the importance of safety at the North and South Boat Ramps. 

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) advises utilizing 4WD/AWD vehicles for better traction due to algae-induced slippery conditions, a common issue resulting from the cooling lake’s elevated water temperatures. IDNR has implemented a wind warning flag system to guide boaters on safe launching practices. Green flags indicate winds under 15mph, yellow flags signal caution with winds between 15-25mph, and red flags mean the lake is closed to boat traffic for winds over 25mph. 

For further details on Braidwood Lake’s fishing season and safety measures, visit the IDNR’s official site. Anglers are encouraged to prioritize safety while enjoying the season.
