DNR stocking trout for stream opener, April 25
Start Date: 3/16/2015
Event Description:
This spring, the Indiana DNR will stock more than 55,000 trout throughout the state in time for stream trout season, which starts April 25.

The state’s 2015 trout stocking plan and list of stocking locations is at

Traditionally, the state has stocked only rainbow trout in all locations except the Brookville Lake tailwater on the Whitewater River, where brown trout are stocked in addition to rainbow trout. New this year, the state also will stock both brown and rainbow trout in LaGrange County, in the Pigeon River and the Oliver Lake chain.

Other changes for 2015 include more fish at Morsches Park in Whitley County and changes to stocking locations along the Little Kankakee River in LaPorte County.

The state’s annual trout stocking plan involves 18 lakes and 19 streams.

Trout can be harvested year-round on Indiana lakes.

Trout can be harvested in Indiana streams between 6 a.m. on the last Saturday in April and Dec. 31.

The daily bag limit on most lakes and streams is five, and only one can be a brown trout. In general, the minimum size limit is 7 inches.

The size limit to keep a brown trout in the Brookville Lake tailwater and on Oliver, Olin and Martin lakes in LaGrange County is 18 inches.

Certain sections of Little Elkhart River, Cobus Creek and Solomon Creek in Elkhart County are catch-and-release-only trout streams, and anglers there must use artificial lures.

The spring stocking of inland lakes with trout could be delayed because of the late ice thaw. Some stream stockings might also be canceled or delayed due to rain or flooding. The DNR will issue a news release and post changes on the trout stocking website if information changes.
