Public Fishing Pier
Wauconda, IL

Added by: Liz Ursin

Bangs Lake in Wauconda is no wake every day until 10:00 AM. You can put in at the public fishing pier on Route 176 across from Wauconda High School on the edge of Homer Cook Memorial Park. There's parking available and the lake water is very clear and clean. It's not exactly a wilderness setting, the lake is completely ringed by homes and businesses, but it's still a nice paddle without having to worry about jet skis or speed boats.
