    About Belleau Lake
    Right Off I-294

    Located just off Interstate 294 is Belleau Lake in Cook County, Illinois. This quaint lake is only 12 acres in size with a maximum depth of 32 feet, making it a quiet oasis for residents.

    Fishing

    Belleau Lake is most famous for its fishing opportunities. The lake is stocked in the spring and fall with 1,000-1,500 rainbow trout to keep the population high.

    Approximately 14 species live in this system, including smallmouth bass, black crappie, green sunfish, warmouth, rock bass, yellow perch, yellow bass, yellow bullhead, golden shiners, gizzard shad, common carp, and spotted suckers.

    Boats are not allowed on this lake, but fishers have an easy time casting from the shores because of Belleau Lake's smaller size.
