River Summary: The Patoka River flows for approximately 167 miles through southern Indiana, and is a tributary of the Wabash River. The river has a rich history dating back to the prehistoric era, and played a significant role in the region's early settlement and economic development. The Patoka River is fed by several tributaries, including the Little Patoka and Gillies Creek, and features several man-made reservoirs and dams, including the Patoka Lake Reservoir and the Jasper City Dam. These reservoirs provide recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and swimming, as well as agricultural and industrial water supply. The Patoka River is also home to various species of fish, including bass and catfish, making it a popular destination for anglers.
