Is a fishing license required to fish in the OFL lakes?

According to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, a fishing license is required for anyone 16 years of age or older. Anglers under 16 years of age, and persons declared legally disabled or blind, may fish without a license. While owners/tenants may fish in waters on their land without a license, this exemption does not apply to organizational lakes, such as those owned by OFLPOA.

The Association doesn’t check licenses but officers from the State Department of Natural Resources could do an inspection at any time. OFL members are expected to follow the Association fishing rules.
