Interlake State Rec Area Hunting and Trapping Co-Managed

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

Hunting, fishing and trapping activities at Interlake State Recreation Area will be managed cooperatively by two DNR divisions - the Division of Outdoor Recreation and the Division of Fish & Wildlife.

Interlake is a 3,550-acre multi-use recreational area near Lynnville that is open to day use for motorized trail riding, horseback riding, fishing, hunting, hiking, trapping and other activities.

The Division of Outdoor Recreation manages the property, but some activities - fishing, hunting and trapping - are more compatible with the mission of the Division of Fish & Wildlife.

So, beginning Thursday, Nate Levitte, property manager at nearby Sugar Ridge Fish & Wildlife Area, will assume responsibility of all aspects of fishing, hunting and trapping programs at Interlake.

Interlake will be open for these activities in compliance with DNR regulations and seasons as published in the Indiana Hunting and Trapping Guide, and the Indiana Fishing Guide.

Trapping will be by permit only.

Hunter sign-in and permit boxes will be posted at the north (Pike County Road 1200S) and south (Indiana 68, Warrick County) entrances of Interlake.

Interlake will be closed to hunting on Nov. 7 to accommodate the 4th annual Toys for Tots fundraiser.
