Fishing on Lake Shafer & Lake Freeman

One perk to living in the Hoosier state is access to tons of beautiful countryside and lakes. Hoosiers love to get outdoors and fishing is one of the most popular hobbies in the state. If you’re looking for new fishing spots, check out Lake Freeman and Lake Shafer. 

Lake Freeman is located in Monticello, Indiana and is a unique treasure. Formed by the construction of the Oakdale Dam in 1925 it is ten miles long and enjoys fifty miles of shoreline. Boaters, fishermen, families and visitors have countless opportunities to enjoy the water and beauty. 

Lake Shafer is one of two reservoirs located in the Twin Lakes area of Monticello, Indiana. It was created along with Lake Freeman in the 1920s when two dams were built outside of Monticello on the Tippecanoe River.

Lake Shafer is an awesome fishing spot. You can catch catfish, crappie, bluegill, carp, bass, and much more.
