Mother Nature has finally decided to give us warmer weather. That means that it's time to go fishing!

Southern Indiana has a ton of great areas for you to fish. From rivers and streams, to lakes and ponds, I have compiled a list of public fishing areas in Southern Indiana Tri-State area for you to use to your benefit. Some areas are good for bank fishing, others, you may want to use a boat/kayak to find the perfect spot. Either way, this list should help you if you are looking into new places to try out your luck.
