Welcome to J. Edward Roush Lake
Located on the Wabash River in eastern Huntington County, J. Edward Roush Lake and Fish and Wildlife area offer outstanding boating, hunting, fishing, camping, and other outdoor recreation activities. J. Edward Roush Lake operates primarily as flood control. It works in conjunction with Salamonie and Mississinewa lakes to control the Upper Wabash River Basin. Originally called Huntington Lake, the dam and lake were renamed to honor retired representative J. Edward Roush, who was instrumental in obtaining funding for the lake.
We hope that your visit is safe and enjoyable and that you come back often! Remember to always wear your PFD while on the lake!
While the Corps manages the dam operations, Indiana DNR Fish and Wildlife operates many of the recreation areas.
