depends on where you live ...Northern In. has several excellent river systems  the upper Kankakee, and the tipppie  river ,offer good late after noon and night fishing from shore till about midnight....3or 4 inch twisters and a 3/8th oz jig at dusk and in to the night.. colors black whit crtrsh  and dark geen mixed in.... cranks work well to and live nitecrawlers and med size shinners or walleye fatheads  also there are bluegills ,crappie , rock bass, bass, pike channel catfish and carp and suckers galore to catch...on the upper river near the little Kankakee, you can catch trout ... just go enjoy , check with your bait shop or get a map online of both river systems.. Kasst bait has an extensive rive experience ..he is in Laporte
Not many lakes that offer shore fishing that are  stocked with walleye  unless you know property owners.. limited shore fishing on laporte's  stone lake ;an it has walleye, as well as pine lake...Bass lake and lake of the woods in breman, also have walleye..... don't forget St joe river in Indiana and Michigan....hopes that helps. I do well at all those places and I fish from shore... ;D

Thank you. I have always wanted to fish the tippiecanoe but I live an hour and a half away which isn't to bad of a drive but a buddy and I wanted to catch walleye this summer. Going to have to give it a try. Recommend any starting points?

Been there when camping at France Park. Very nice river. Also where the eel and Wabash come together. Not sure but by the 2 dams looks very interesting also.

You could also shore fish Sylvan along the dam.  Park acrossed the road at the spillway, walk across the road, and you can walk the length of the dam.  Also may be worth trying by the boat launch.  There should be a bit of shore access there.  I have caught a few eyes at night from both those areas.

the tippy below norway and oakdale dams is loaded with fish.  jigs drifted near bottom is the normal way.  if your after big fish try live 3" gills or chubs on bottom rigs, in eddie areas or other current breaks. other bonus predators will come calling too.  if your in the wabash it could be a 50# flathead! gear up they dont care if your line is heavy, they dont even know what line is. lol

what area are you in?  people can help better with a location in the state to work from.

The Wabash is loaded with walleye and Sauger and has good shore/wade fishing. River is for the most part very shallow in the upper portion say from Peru to Huntington. You'll find fish in nearly every area below a ripple that has two to three ft of water. Jigs and crank baits are my go to baits. Old pair of jeans and tennis shoes, in water on a hot summer evening, don't get better than that.
