Black Lake Fishing

Known as “Nature’s Fish Hatchery,” Black Lake is the biggest of the Indian River lakes. This lake is a fish paradise, offering plenty of shoals, sandbars, weed beds and rocky points for fish to enjoy. The fishing here is very diverse, giving anglers the opportunity to catch largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, bluegill, yellow perch, crappie, northern pike, and walleye. If you have a motorboat, you can get out on the water by using the lake’s concrete boat ramp. There are no limits on horsepower at Black Lake. If you prefer non-motorized boats, you can launch your canoe, kayak, or car topper in several locations around the lake. There are also plenty of spots along the shore where you can cast out your line and land a fish.
