“Awesome”
Reviewed 14 May 2010

Went fishing at this place for the first time on Tuesday. I've worked in Joliet for years but didn't know this place existed. Great place to go when you get out of work a little early because it's really cheap. Even in the rain I caught a six lb and a four lb catfish that I'm going to grill tonight! I will definitly be back a lot this summer.

Reviewed 27 July 2009

Spent four hours there 7/26/09, and didn't get a nibble, let alone SEE A FISH. Don't get me wrong, the place is beautiful, the water is crystal clear, and it looks like a spectacular place to fish, but that's not the case. In 4 hours, not a single hit - worked Shorelines, Islands, even the Center of the lake with Spinners, Rooster Tails, Power Bait, Mepps Comets, etc. Saw 1 person catch a tiny catfish on the shore. Didn't see anyone working lures, 99% of fishermen were still fishing with live bait. Appears that the lake hasn't been stocked in many, many months and whatever fish WERE there have been snapped up with their 6-fish keeper rule.

Will not go back - EVER.

How could anyone be negative about this place? It is beautiful and very family friendly. We can usually pull at least a few catfish out of Plainfield, even on the hottest of summer days. Trout fishin in the spring and fall is really good there. I can't wait to get back out there.

Terrible place, no fish, doesn't worth to come. They claim to stock fish, doesn't seem to be true.

i went to plainfield fishing resort on october 21st of 2007. I am a 15 year old and went with my dad to catch some big fish. The wind was blowing ssw to w about 20mph. The fishing at catfish corner sucked, but by the bait shop/ ticket shop was abundant in bluegill and you could see swarms of trout jump. when i was there the best places were at duck corner if the winds are blowing ssw to w. At this spot fish off the peninsula with a little bay and you can catch bluegill all day. Try fishing with chuncks of nightcrawlers and wax worms. At trout heaven try fishing off the bridge of David's island with wax worms and nighcrwlers. There are 3 little bays you can fish. When i was there that was where all the fishermen were at. Check on the map by the lower right hand side to where the road ends and fish off those bays.

Stayed October 2007
