INDIANAPOLIS (WANE) – The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) recently stocked additional rainbow trout in northern Indiana streams.

On Monday the department said that Curtis Creek Trout Rearing Station had a surplus of rainbow trout, which allowed for the additional stockings.

Some sites that are not normally stocked in early May received trout last week, including:

  • Nasby Dam and Ontario Dam, Pigeon River in LaGrange County
  • Fawn River behind Fawn River State Fish Hatchery in Steuben County
  • R. 16 at Riverbend Park in Middlebury, Little Elkhart River in Elkhart County
  • Lakeside Park, Mill Creek in Fulton County
  • Franke Park, Spy Run Creek in Allen County
  • Potato Creek State Park and North Liberty Town Park, Potato Creek in St. Joseph County
  • Hunt Park, Slocum Ditch in LaPorte County

Other sites that received surplus trout in addition to their regular stocking numbers include:

  • R. 175 N. and C.R. 1100 W., Pigeon River in Steuben County
  • R. 150 N., Turkey Creek in LaGrange County
  • Bonneyville Mill, Little Elkhart River in Elkhart County

The bag limit for trout in inland waters, other than Lake Michigan and its tributaries, is five fish per day with a minimum size of seven inches, the DNR said. Review trout regulations at Anglers 18 years and older need an Indiana fishing license and a trout/salmon stamp to fish for trout.
