Located in Jackson County, Illinois, Kinkaid Lake is approximately 5 miles north of Murphysboro and 100 miles southeast of St.louis.
Built in 1968, the lake encompasses 2,750 acres. Ownership of the surrounding land is divided among the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, which manages approximately 4,000 acres, the U.S. Forest Service, which administers 5,000 acres, and Kinkaid-Reed's Creek Conservancy District, which oversees 300 acres.
Owned and operated by Kevin Wehner and wife Ashley Wehner, our passion for Kinkaid Lake will guide you in the right direction on the diverse waters of this great lake.
As a crappie fisherman I enjoy being on the water as much as you do. Our trips have no time restrictions. Fish as few or as many hours as you would like on your trip.
Groups can be accommidated with advanced notice. Southern Illinois is blessed with some great guides that work together to make fishing a great experience for anyone.
