Fishing & Hunting

GET CAUGHT UP IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS

In Pekin you’ll find a rough and ready playground. Whether you’re a hunter or angler, you’ll revel in the sheer number of outdoor recreation opportunities around the area, plus added bonuses like well-equipped campsites and lots of hiking trails.

You might know us for our proximity to the Illinois River, but you’ll also want to drop a line in the area’s many other lakes and streams, known for their ability to produce trophy fish. Bass, catfish, crappie and bluegill abound. Powerton Lake is a particular favorite – maybe you’ll top the 50 pound blue catfish caught there in 2013! Or if you’re feeling particularly frisky, make the short hop to Spring Lake and try to pull in a muskie – try holes in the vegetation in June or open water in winter.

If you’re a hunter you’ll find your targets in the widely varied terrain across the region, yielding trophy-sized bucks, waterfowl, turkey, pheasant, rabbits and more. The area’s game lands provide prime opportunities to match skills and take in views. Hunt for bucks in the great cover at Lick Creek. Flush some birds at Pekin Lake. Or draw your bow on the fowl and game at Banner Marsh.

And whether you need ammo, lures, lines, poles, game calls, bows or more, you’ll find the equipment and accessories you need close by at our many outdoor sporting good suppliers.
