  • Board approves changes to creel limits

    At the March 18 regular meeting of the Board of Directors, the Board moved to change the creel limits in the ACLPOA Rules and Regulations. The Motion states:

    To approve to change to the daily bag limit on largemouth bass from two under 14″ to five under 13″ per day. The new slot limit will change to 13″ to 24″ for Catch and Release and the one fish over 24″ per day will remain the same.”

  • Beaver Damage

    If you see evidence of beaver damage, please contact the Maintenance Department at 815-492-2167.

  • Goose Nests

    We need your help. Our Goose Egg Addling/Oiling program volunteers do not see every nest. If you are out on the lake or trails and see a nest, or if you have a nest on your property, please call the office at 815-492-2238 and share the location so our volunteers can include the nest in the program. 
    Remember: we are not trying to eliminate all geese from ACL, but hope to manage the number of geese returning each year.  With a successful program in place, we can keep our lake healthier, lower the amount of unsightly goose droppings, and still enjoy the beauty of these birds.
