DNR Prepares for Stream Trout Season With Stocking Efforts


The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is making a few changes for the spring fishing season.

The DNR says they will be stocking more than 55-thousand trout in the state’s waterways. In the past, rainbow trout have stocked in all but a few locations. Stocking efforts will be conducted prior to stream trout season beginning on April 25th.

Trout fishing can be conducted all year in the state. Stream fishing for trout begins the last Saturday in April and ends December 31st.

According to the DNR, more fish are said to be stocked along the Little Kankakee River in LaPorte County in the local area.

Bag limits can be found on the DNR’s website.

The DNR advised that stocking efforts could be delayed if ice is slow to thaw in the state.
