Trout Stocking in Indiana

DNR stocked 5,228 rainbow trout in five different lakes and streams across Indiana this month.

Curtis Creek Trout Rearing Station had a surplus of trout, which allowed for these additional stockings. The stocked surplus trout are greater than 7 inches on average.

Stocking locations included:

—Pinhook Lake (South Bend, St. Joseph County) – 400 fish

—Fancher Lake (Crown Point, Lake County) – 1,000 fish

—Delaware Lake (Fort Harrison State Park, Marion County) – 700 fish

—Cedar Lake (Whitley County) – 2,128 fish

—Brookville Reservoir Tailwater (Franklin County) – 1,000 fish

Anglers age 18 and older need an Indiana fishing license and a trout/salmon stamp to fish for trout. The bag limit for trout in inland waters, other than Lake Michigan and its tributaries, is five fish per day with a minimum size limit of 7 inches. There is no closed season for taking trout from inland lakes. Review inland trout regulations: eregulations.com/indiana/fishing/inland-trout-regulations/.
