Lake Details

Summary

What you need to know about fishing Monroe Lake

Monroe Lake is Indiana's largest body of water with just over 10,700 acres of water. Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, and Walleye all inhabit these waters and are popular among sport fisherman. Monroe is known to have big bass and walleye. The IDNR runs one of the best research and tagging programs with these walleyes. The IDNR tracks the movement of these fish in order to better understand what kind of habit is producing such healthy fish. If you happen to catch one of these tagged fish, write down the number on the tag, release the fish, and report the catch to the South Region Fisheries Office (812-279-1215).
