Where to fish?

Luckily for us here in the Quincy area of Illinois, Siloam Springs State Park, here in Adams County, was named one of the best places for trout fishing during the fall season last year by the experts at fishingbooker.com. It seems as though the state does a good job of spreading the trout throughout the state so that no matter where you live you won't be too far away from a good place to fish for trout. I have never been trout fishing but I bet I would enjoy it, there are few things better than a cooler full of beer, a lunch packed with snacks, and hanging with your buddies trying to catch some fish! Where do you trout fish here in the Land of Lincoln?

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
