Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, flathead catfish, black crappie, white crappie, bluegill and white bass at Salamonie Lake in Indiana.

Surrounded by Salamonie State Forest, Dora New Holland State Recreation Area, My Hope State Recreation Area, Lost Bridge State Recreation Area and Mt Etna State Recreation Area in northeast Indiana, Salamonie Lake has 2,800 surface acres of fishing wonderland. This "warm-water" haven is home to big bass and catfish, and has healthy populations of crappie, bluegill and white bass. While boat fishing is generally the preferred approach, there is also fairly good some fishing from shore at various areas of the lake.

Ice fishing during winter at Salamonie Lake often brings reasonably good success. Check with local officials for authorization and Indiana DNR for regulations before attempting to fish through the ice on any lake.
