New public fishing area opens in Morgan County

Anglers will have better and safer access to the West Fork of the White River in Morgan County thanks to a new public fishing area that opened this month.

Three Rivers Public Fishing Area is on State Route 67 just north of the highway’s intersection with S.R. 39 and about 4 miles north of Martinsville. The 39-acre property on the west bank of the river offers more than a half-mile of shoreline access in an area with excellent catfish, walleye, smallmouth bass and white bass fishing.

Parking is available at a gravel parking lot. A walking path takes anglers to the river.

Before the opening of the public fishing area, anglers were parking their vehicles along the road, creating a safety hazard.
