Big Indiana Creek

& Lake Hays

Lake Hays is a great little lake to wet a beginners line or just a quiet place to relax with a pole on a hot day. Fishing is allowed in Big Indiana Creek or Cedar Lake with a valid Indiana Fishing License.

Grass Carp

In 1992, grass carp were introduced to the lake to aid in the control of algae and vegetation growth. Because of the function of these fish, it is illegal in Indiana to catch these fish from a public waterway.
