Join DNR to improve Patoka Lake fish habitat at a volunteer habitat structure build day. As reservoirs such as Patoka Lake age, the number and type of hiding places for fish decrease. The Reservoir Habitat Enhancement Program addresses this issue and works to build fish habitat where natural structure is lacking. Pallet fish habitat structures are one option to improve the complexity of the habitat at Patoka Lake.

On March 14, a pallet structure build will take place from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. ET at Patoka Lake. Volunteers should meet at Painter Creek Ramp, located on the northern part of the lake off of IN-145. A Patoka Lake map showing the Painter Creek Ramp location can be found at

Pallets and other building materials will be provided. Please bring cordless drills, work gloves, and protective eyewear if you have them, but tools are not required to attend. We will be working outside so please dress accordingly (long pants and close-toed shoes). Bring snacks and plenty of drinking water.

Register for this event by signing up as a volunteer with DFW. Visit and follow instructions under "Sign up to Volunteer." Once you are signed up, please visit and click "Patoka Lake Habitat Build" to register for the event.
