New public fishing area opens in Morgan County
MORGAN COUNTY, Ind. ( December 30, 2015) — Hoosier fishermen will have a better and safer access to one of their favorite fishing spots at the West Fork of the White River in Morgan County thanks to a new public fishing area that has been created by the Department of Natural Resources.
The Three Rivers Public Fishing Area, which is located on State Route 67 near S.R. 39 and is about four miles north of Martinsville, has been a long time popular spot for area fishermen. The problem was that those wanting to fish in the area had to park and leave their cars along the roadside creating a traffic hazard. Now the 39-acre property located on the west bank of the river has a new gravel parking lot built off the roadway by DNR and also has a walking path that will take anglers to the river.
DNR and loca officials believe that the upgrade will attract more fishermen to the area.
