The only sugar creek I know of doesn't hit those counties. Maybe this will help?

I think there are 2 sugar creeks. There's one that goes by that area and one that goes through the counties I mentioned. I think the Sugar Creek I mentioned has the state record for rock bass.

There is a Sugar Creek that runs through those counties. Unfortunately, I do not know of any public access in those counties. Only public access I know of is at Camp Atterbury.

Found a couple campsites that'll let you pay to fish. One is off of 400n west Fairland in Shelby co and the other is by 200n and 300w in hancock. The one in Shelby co was decent. Pulled a couple of keeper sized smalls but from what I can tell it's not a particularly good spot. It doesn't have the eddys or fallen trees that river fish typically like.

The one in Fairland, is that just west of London Rd on the North Side. How much does it cost?

as Prybis said there is a ramp at camp atterbury fish and wild life. I have put in there before and paid blues canoes to shuttle me back up and let me pull out at their camp site. Your only on sugar creek for a short while with that float and driftwood most the time after blue river and sugar meet up. It's a nice float fishing is ok blues canoes makes it convenient to do a float on your own, but it's also a down side as they put a lot of people on that stretch especially over the summer. The fall is a good time to make it. You should be able to park off any bridge and access the creek and wade up or down stream from the bridge.
why does everything have to get in the way of fishing and hunting?

I had no idea about blues canoes. That's a great idea, especially since I have a yak.
