Egyptian Hills Resort is a mecca for fishermen. Few places on earth are as conducive to fishing as the Lake of Egypt. If the thought of hooking a worm, hearing the zing of a casting line, feeling that tug, and reeling in The Big One appeals to you, you’re in the right place.
The Lake of Egypt is a reservoir in the Little Egypt region of Illinois. It is located six miles south of Marion, Illinois and covers 2,300 acres with 90 miles of shoreline. The lake has an average depth of 18 feet with a maximum depth of 52 feet. Fishing includes Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish, Striped Bass, and Crappie.
