There’s a new boat ramp for anglers and boaters at Bixler Lake.
A larger parking area is also part of the agreement between the DNR and Kendallville Parks Department.
The ramp was replaced last fall and the parking lot paving is being done this spring along with installation of a loading pier and signage.
The improvements to the site off of Sherman Street were made possible by fishing license sales and taxes of boat fuel.
The 117 acre lake features bluegills, largemouth bass and yellow perch, with some walleyes, channel catfish and northern pike also present. Carp are also abundant.
The DNR has 24 public access sites in Noble County plus one at Chain-O-Lakes State Park. They provide boating access to 41 lakes in the county.
