Description
Description: Prior to 1947 Wolf Lake was a small, shallow glacial lake situated in a wetland area between the confluence of the Grand Calumet and Calumet Rivers. Since that time however, the construction of a low level dam and levees from extensive dredging operations have changed the lake's appearance. The lake and it's fishery have developed into a haven for anglers to enjoy some quiet time away from the highly urbanized vicinity and catch quality-sized fish. The lake is located on the Illinois and Indiana state line. The Illinois portion of Wolf Lake consists of 390 of the acres of water and is managed by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Fishing ranks as one of the most popular recreational activities at William Powers. The maximum depth of Wolf Lake is 15 feet and the average depth is 5 feet. There are 3 developed boat ramps in the Park, but no concession or fish cleaning facilities available. History and Status of the Sport Fishery: The last survey was 4/26/2012 evaluating the fisheries in NW Pool and Stateline Pool; at that time, two gallons of Reward were applied in the Office Lagoon to manage Eurasian milfoil and lily pads. in 2013, the IEPA requested fish flesh contaminant samples as part their Statewide monitoring program. Wolf Lake receives annual stockings of predator sport fish: 12,000 8" to 10" channel catfish, 4500 2" smallmouth bass, 1200 8" northern pike, and 15,000 2" walleye. Additional Lake Information: Fishing access is reduced during the waterfowl hunting season. Boat fishing is allowed; boats with motors larger than 10 hp must remain at "no wake". Rental boats are available from the park concessionaire. Swimming and wading are prohibited. Two pole and line fishing only. The park is open sunrise to sunset.
