Boat rental
Boats available for rent include pontoons, fishing boats and single and tandem kayaks. Reservations are suggested for pontoon boats and a deposit is required. All other watercraft are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Call 815-777-2012 to make your reservations. You must be at least 18 years old to rent a boat and must present one of the following: GTA proximity card, GTA guest pass or guest identification from Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa.

Fishing licenses
Even though Lake Galena is a private lake, it is still governed by the state of Illinois and a fishing license is required for all anglers with the following exceptions: persons under 16 years of age, persons declared legally disabled or blind or persons from Illinois on leave from active duty in the Armed Forces. These requirements are strictly enforced by GTA Security and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR).

All Illinois fishing licenses must either be purchased online or must be printed on an IDNR electronic terminal. The GTA has an IDNR electronic terminal at the Marina. Fishing licenses are available at the Marina during regular business hours.

Anyone without access to a computer may purchase a license online using one of the guest computers at the Owners’ Club. To purchase an online Illinois fishing license go to http://www.dnr.illinois.gov/fishing.

Live bait
What’s a Marina without bait? The Bait & Tackle Shop sells night crawlers, wax worms, leeches and minnows. Anglers are asked to purchase bait only from certified suppliers or at the GTA Marina to reduce the threat of introducing invasive species into Lake Galena. This action has been recognized as a necessary inconvenience to ensure the protection of one of The Galena Territory’s most magnificent and cherished amenities.

Half Off Rentals

Lake Galena Marina has half off all rental boats Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. How about a day rate for $300 or a half day rate for $150? Weekends and holidays are excluded from these great offers and we recommend you make reservations to ensure we can meet your needs by calling the Bait Shop at 815-777-2012.
