LaSalle Lake Opens for Season on March 15
MARSEILLES, IL - The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) today announced that the LaSalle Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area near Marseilles will open for the 2015 season on March 15.

Daily hours of operation are 6:00 a.m. � sunset, seven days a week.

All fishermen must be off the lake by closing time each day.  Hours may be adjusted due to staffing issues, so visitors should call ahead to (815) 795-2448 to confirm operating hours.

Visitors to LaSalle Lake are reminded that on opening day and during the first two weeks of the fishing season, long lines are expected at the site entrance.  Visitors are encouraged to adhere to all rules, regulations and direction from staff to make this spring season at LaSalle Lake an enjoyable experience for all.

Visitors are also reminded that LaSalle Lake is a perched lake and can become turbulent during windy or inclement weather.  The IDNR encourages all visitors at LaSalle Lake to be aware of the lake conditions at all times. 

There is a wind warning system at LaSalle Lake.  It is located on the tip of the internal dike that extends from the west shore.  When the light of the wind warning system is flashing, no boats are to be launched and boats on the lake should seek shelter.
