Lake Renovations Planned for Willow Slough FWA

(UNDATED) – The Indiana DNR will be hosting a public meeting to discuss upcoming renovations on J. C. Murphey Lake at Willow Slough Fish & Wildlife Area.

The lake requires periodic renovations to maintain habitat for the maximum number of species and recreational opportunities. Renovations will not only provide habitat for rare or endangered species, but will also improve opportunities for waterfowl hunters, anglers, trappers, and wildlife viewing. However, lake renovations are expected to take until 2024 to complete, with a drawdown beginning in 2022. Recreational opportunities will be impacted while the lake is drawn down and cleaned up.

The public meeting will include a presentation from property management and fisheries staff and a Q&A session to address any questions or concerns.
