Looking Back At This Time Last Year You We All Posting About Going Back To Prarie Creek And Trying Your Luck!
1) Where Is It Located?
2) Did Any Of You Go?
3) Are There Motor Restrictions?
4) What Else Can You Tell Me About The Lake?
Prairie Creek is about 10-15 miles outside of Muncie. I believe it is an electric-only reservoir...at least it was when I was at BSU. The electric company owns a lot (if not all) of the land around it...lots of good shrooming there. Lots of carp in the reservoir too. Good spearing.
Back to the subject at hand. Prairie Creek is not electric motor only. On the upper and more shallow part of the lake people can ski. From the main ramp to the west there is a speed limit--I think it is 15 mph. It used to have good carp populations, but in recent years those have bee supplanted by white bass, walleye and crappie. It is likely that not many will be planning trips to the lake this spring because they were having trouble with their launch ramp--you would know that if you ever backed your trailer over the edge and could not pull it out no matter how you tried--and they made the long awaited repairs to the ramp in the fall of '05 and into the winter. To make the repairs they had to nearly drain the lake. Pleole I have talked to say that even if we have a wet spring, it will probably be August before the lake fills again. You may want to call over there before planning a trip.
