Indian Lake is a small, mesotrophic (moderately fertile) bass-panfish lake located between the towns of Garfield and Leaf Valley in northern Douglas County. The lake is relatively shallow with the majority of its area being comprised of water less than 15 feet deep. Water clarity is generally good year round and submergent vegetation is quite abundant. This is a relatively peaceful lake that is not highly developed and has minimal angling and recreational pressure. Pressure is typically highest on windy days when anglers seek a calm refuge from adjacent lakes that are larger and more wind swept. Bass and sunfishes are the primary management species in Indian Lake. Walleye and northern pike are species of secondary management importance. The fish community assemblage is typical of most bass-panfish lakes in west-central Minnesota. Largemouth bass are abundant and size structure of this population is good. The largest bass captured during the 2005 electrofishing survey was 19.1 inches with average size being 12.8 inches. Northern pike and bluegill numbers have increased in recent years. Although abundance of these two species is high, their size tends to be relatively small. Black crappie are present but abundance of this species is relatively low. Walleye are also present in low numbers. No walleye were sampled in previous surveys dating back to 1986. However, a fry stocking in 1997 and initiation of biennial fingerling stockings in 2003 have led to the establishment of a limited fishery. Other fish species sampled during the 2005 survey included golden shiner, white sucker, black and brown bullhead, pumpkinseed sunfish, and yellow perch. Perch numbers have declined substantially in recent years, likely due to the increase in northern pike abundance and the establishment of a limited walleye fishery.
