Location: City of Anna in Union County, IL.

Description: Anna City Lake is a 3-acre pond built within Anna City Park. The entire pond is accessible to shore angling.

History and Status of the Sport Fishery: A fish community electrofishing survey was conducted on September 29, 2021. No surveys had been conducted prior to 2021. Results from the 2021 survey indicate that all species of fish in the lake grow poorly. In consequence, current harvest regulation need to be adjusted to allow more harvest. In addition, complex fish habitat is currently very limited in the lake. The addition of brush piles or aquatic plants would likely benefit the fishery.

Largemouth Bass: 3 fish daily harvest limit; 15-inch minimum length limit
