Turtle Creek Reservoir - Originally, Turtle Creek was developed to provide cooling water for the local Hoosier Energy Generating Station, but has since then become very popular among local hunters, fisherman, and teachers of the like. Constructed in 1980, it is said that this reservoir (controled by Hoosier Energy) is one of the best fishing spots in Indiana (southwest part of the state). Covering over 1,500 acres, a massive education center focusing on environmental studies offers teachers a location to teach biology, zoology, wildlife preservation, energy, chemistry and the environment.
Stocked with bluegill, redear sunfish, largemouth bass, channel catfish, and crappie, there is plenty of activity for the angler of all experiences. A 20-inch minimum size limit is in effect for largemouth bass with a daily limit of one. Boats are subject to a motor limit of 10 h.p. If you are fishing from a boat, you are urged to be alert to changing weather conditions, especially from the high winds of the north/south west, which have the capability of producing rough situations on the water.
All sporting activites are subject to Hoosier Energy rules and regulations as well as Indiana State Fish and Wildlife laws.
