Panfishing Near Bloomington

Discussion in 'Indiana Pan Fishing' started by IN-4-OUTDOORS, Jan 8, 2006.

  1. I'M LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ON A LAKE IN BLOOMINGTON OFF OF THE 37 BUSINESS ROUTE. A BUDDY OF MINE SAID SOME GUYS USED TO FISH IT THAT HE WENT TO SCHOOL WITH. :help:
     
  2. Bryant's Creek Lake

    The only State Lake I know of off old 37 is Bryant's Creek Lake. If you come north on old 37 you can't miss it on the left side. It sits right at the entrance to Morgan/Monroe State Forest. There are 2 other ponds on the property Cherry Lake and Prather Lake. Prather is smaller but has close to a 2 mile hike to get to therefore less fished.
     

  3. dnrlawman,

    I looked on google local and found a lake north of the IU campus north of S.R. 46 and just east of where old 37 wyes off of 37 B.R. If you look at the satellite image it looks like a good sized lake with a dam on the northwest end of the lake. Also I think it was Headley Rd. and Hinkle Rd. that come together on the east side and make a loop presumably at the boat access ramp!
     
  4. dnr lawman,

    I just got ahold of my buddy again and he said it is called Griffy Lake. He thinks it is state owned but he said he thought the east part is off limits because of a bird sanctuary, but he cant remember all of the details!
     
  5. I don't think Griffey is state owned I think it is owned by the city of Bloomington.
