Fishing Near Indianapolis?
I am from Chicago and am making a trip down to Indy this weekend. What are some decent lakes around the southside of Indianapolis? When I say around I mean 20-30 minutes at most. Thank you very much for any help and advice.

From http://indianaoutsiders.com/...index.php?topic=16.0
"We decided on Eagle Creek Reservoir. After a bit of research, we decided on a spot right off of 56th street. Take 465 around to the west side and 56th street head west. After you cross over the lake, on your right side (north) you will see the parking area. You know youre in the right spot when you see the frame of a huge metal bear."

Was getting alot of bites in this spot, but no big catches. Good luck!

Eagle creek is full of catfish. Great place to fish from shore. Chicken livers.

GOOD LUCK

I have fished eagle creek a bunch of times from shore and from my tube. I've never caught anything. Also, I didn't think just anyone could fish at the Lilly Rec park. I thought you had to be a Lilly employee? there is a gate at the front that never lets me in.
