Braidwood Lake open for fishing

BANK FISHERMEN scatter along the south shore of Braidwood Cooling Lake on Saturday to try their luck to kick off the 2024 season. The 2,460-acre lake opened Friday with boaters lining up at north and south end boat ramps. Heavy fog on Saturday hindered boat traffic for much of the morning but by 10 a.m. the wind picked up and the skies cleared as temperatures climbed into the 60s.
