One of our favorite places to fish is Summit Lake State Park off of hwy 36 northeast of New Castle. Our daughter lives in Muncie and we meet them at Summit a lot. Also has boat rentals and a great campground. It has been written up as having some of the cleanist water and best fishing in Indiana.

Another place we have heard a lot about at New Castle is Westwood Lake. We have been out there but never fished there. There's also Prairie Grove just outside Muncie but we haven't fished it either nor do we know much about it.

A little further drive but a great place to fish is Brookville Reservoir south of Richmond, Indiana.

If you do a little research at the library on old issues of Outdoor Indiana you can find all kinds of things about fishing in Indiana.

Summit Lake is a good spot, it's right about there around Wilbur Wright Park. There is a lot of good fishing in that place, I've caught loads of crappie out of there (main reason I go there). I don't live there,but I do have a friend in that area, I'll ask him about some other places and get back to you on that.
