(Birdseye, IN) The Indiana Bass Federation, a state organization with the purpose to assist and unite member clubs and to assist and cooperate with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in matters that are mutually beneficial to Indiana resources has announced they will be releasing approx. 1,800, 8”-10” inch largemouth bass into Patoka Lake on Friday, May 29 @ approx. 12:00 PM EST.  The Indiana DNR has been crucial in the habitat planning and coordination of the fish release.

Patoka Lake is the second-largest reservoir in the U.S. state of Indiana (after Lake Monroe) and is spread across Dubois, Crawford, and Orange counties in southern Indiana.

The goal is to stock bass in Patoka Lake in 2020 to be studied by the Indiana DNR over the next five years.
