Warmer Temperatures Waking up Indiana Fish

Our first few days near 70 degrees have already starting to wake the fish up.
Jamie Smyth with the Department of Natural Resources says fishing in Indiana is really good as we get closer to the spawn of the popular sport-fishing breeds. Smyth says Bass, Sauger, Walleye, and Crappie are all biting. He says the cold water fish will be out and biting still, if you find the right spot. "There can be really good fishing if you can get below some dams right now, on any of our rivers or streams for Walleye and Sauger, as well as white bass, and hybrid-striped basses that make their run to try and spawn," he says.
Smyth says it might also might be a good time to teach your kids how to fish, since the weather is warm, the fish are biting and they fish for free as long as they are under 18.
