BROOKVILLE LAKE: May 4, 2019

Time: 9:30AM

SPONSOR: Robert Moore

In the past, the Brookville paddle has launched at old Dunlapsville Road Ramp and Egypt Hollow.  This year we will meet at the N Treaty Line Road ramp off of State Road 44.  I don’t think that HCC has ever launched a club trip there because water level is usually too low for an early season scheduled trip.  Well, the water level is coming up so it should work.  We will start at the north end of the lake and head south out of the idle zone and on to the west fork or Hanna Creek.  This is the best bird watching zone of the lake.   Plan on a 12 to15 mile paddle.  Sea kayaks are strongly suggested as a good portion of the paddle will be outside of the idle zone.  Brookville Lake is a 5260-acre lake managed by the Army Corps of Engineers and Indiana Department of Natural Resources for flood control and recreation.  A detailed description of the lake can be found on line (http://www.in.gov/dnr/parklake/files/brookville_trail.pdf ). 


Put-In: Meet at the State Road 44 ramp
From I 70, follow State Road 1 south through Connersville and tun east onto State Road 44.  Turn right North Treaty Line Road just before the bridge.  Turn left at the first road which is to the ramp.  There is a gate at the ramp road that is closed for high water.  Launch is free.  There is an out house and plenty of parking.  The coordinates below should get you to the ramp.
