Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, black crappie, walleye, bluegill, bream, redear sunfish, yellow perch and northern pike at Syracuse Lake in Indiana.

This 400 acre lake in the north central Indiana, at Syracuse, IN, offers a wide range of fish species for anglers. Syracuse Lake is lined with trees and boat docks, both of which are great cover for all fish which spend time in the shallows - bass, bluegill, bream, sunfish and perch. Crappie typically stay 5 foot and deeper, and walleye tend to cruise the deeper channels of the lake. Some fishing from shore is available, but best results can be achieved by fishing from a boat.

Ice fishing during winter at Syracuse Lake can often produce nice catches. Check with local officials for authorization and Indiana DNR for regulations before attempting to fish through the ice on any lake.
