Fish for bass, bluegill and more in scenic Sugar Creek, which flows through the heart of Turkey Run State Park.

Turkey Run State Park Fishing

Sugar Creek, one of Indiana’s most scenic rivers, flows right through the heart of Turkey Run State Park. You can fish for bass, bluegill and more in the creek, though a state fishing license is required.

If you prefer fishing from a boat note that there are two public access points to Sugar Creek just outside Turkey Run: one upstream of the Narrows Covered Bridge at the Brush Creek canoe ramp, and one downstream at a canoe ramp by Cox Ford Covered Bridge. Check out the map of Turkey Run or click the button below for more information about the public access points on Sugar Creek.
