It's finally fishing season. If you're looking to hit up some new hot spots in the Evansville area, this list might help.

One of my favorite things to do during the summer is to hit a lake and go fishing. It's an activity you can do with your friends and family or just simply by yourself. Something about getting out on a lake is a great way to de-stress, enjoy life, and have a little excitement whenever you get a bite.

The Evansville are 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 Evansville area, including some places in Kentucky, 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.
