James Lake, IN

With 2,000 surface acres and plenty of fishing, boating and water sport activities, Lake James is a vacation paradise in the northeast corner of Indiana. It is conveniently located just west of I-69 at Glen Eden. It wraps around the west side of Pokagon State Park. This is a great place to take the family camping, fishing and picnicking. There is public boat launches and plenty of shoreline for fishing from the bank.

Ice fishing during winter at James 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.
