Black Lake stretches 20 miles before it drains into the Oswegatchie River. The lake is a great place to fish for largemouth & smallmouth bass, yellow perch, crappies, bluegills, northern pike, and walleye.
Black Lake has been named as one of the top ten bass lakes in the country by several acclaimed publications.
Largemouth Bass will be located near the islands and in the bays. Due to the 15" minimum length regulation that has been in place for several years, there are quite a few large bass in this lake.
Smallmouth Bass can be taken on a tube-jig out near the middle of the lake.
Small jigs that are baited with grubs are very successful in taking a variety of different panfish.
Cast minnow plugs or worm -tipped jigs in the narrow portions of the lake (where there's a slight current) for the best Walleye fishing.
You can access the lake via the Black Lake Boat Launch on County Route 6 a few miles south of Edwardsville.
