I was kind of wondering if anyone knows of any good walleye lakes in Northwest Indiana? I know of Lake Patoka down south, was kind of wondering about northwest Indiana. I know around where I live not much is mentioned about walleye fishing. Thanks for any info, good fishing, God bless.
Wolf Lake in Hammond has been doing well lately for walleye. The past two years,Perch America and other area bait shops collected donations and proceded to stock the lake with thousands of walleye and perch,and more stocking coming in the future. In due time the Wolf will be a walleye hotspot. You may also want to try the Kankakee River or even The ST.Joe river. These are all a quick drive from anywhere in NW Indiana. Hope this helps you out Doc Mike.

I also like to fish Bass Lake south of Knox. The walleye action is decent but most fish are not quite limit. I hear of people taking limits of legal fish, but I usually catch enough walleyes, but too small to keep. If you go, be extremely careful near the launch as it is quite shallow. Also, I agree with wolf lake, but am not sure how to fish it.

Thanks for the replies. I live in Laporte and know where Bass lake is but not Wolf lake. If I'm not mistaken isn't most of Bass lake shallow. Thanks again good fishing and God bless.

I would try Maxinkuckee... This is a great bass fishery, but is more well known as NW Indiana's walleye factory as there are a lot of brooder fish that come out of this lake. Bass lake is another excellent choice as well as the Kankakee River. Goodluck!

There are some real good eye waters in northwest indiana. Bass Lake outside of North Judson is very good and so is Lake Mackincucee in Culver. The Kankakee River is also excellant for walleye.
