Rend Lake has a good largemouth bass fishery with plenty of bass in the 1 to 2.5 pound range. Bigger bass in the 3 to 4 pound range are consistently caught and don’t be shocked if you run into a 5 pound largemouth bass or even bigger. The warmer weather gives these fish a longer growing season than northern Illinois, so if you get down here to fish, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with some of the bigger bass that are here.
