Trout Season on Inland Streams Set to Open this Month
STATE WIDE -- Be sure to find your fishing license, because trout season is upon us.
Thousands of trout will be available to Indiana fishermen starting at 6 a.m. Saturday, April 27.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources will stock over 20,000 rainbow trout in 17 streams across 12 counties.
In order to preserve the trout, certain streams will be closed to all fishing from now until opening day.
The DNR recommends that anglers use natural live bait, such as worms and wax worms, to catch trout. Corn and small marshmallows, either plain white or colored, are also popular.
There is a bag limit for trout in inland waters. Each fisherman is limited to five trout per day, and no more than one of these can be a brown trout.
Hoosiers 18 years and older need an Indiana fishing license and trout/salmon stamp to fish for trout.
