Mother Nature has finally decided to give us warmer weather. That means that it's time to go fishing...as long as you're social distancing, of course.

There's not a lot of things to do nowadays while we are under the Stay At Home Order. Indiana DNR has confirmed that you can still go fishing under this order as long as you practice social distancing. Which for most people who enjoy fishing, that shouldn't be a problem.

Southern Indiana has a ton of great areas for you to fish. From rivers and streams, to lakes and ponds, I have compiled a list of public fishing areas in Southern Indiana Tri-State area for you to use to your benefit. Some areas are good for bank fishing, others, you may want to use a boat/kayak to find the perfect spot. Either way, this list should help you if you are looking into new places to try out your luck.
