2011 Indiana Mid Season Trout Stocking

posted in: regional | 0

Indiana DNR Fish & Wildlife will stock trout in Pigeon River in Steuben and LaGrange counties, Turkey Creek in LaGrange County, Little Elkhart River in Elkhart County, Little Kankakee River in LaPorte County and Potato Creek in St. Joseph County.

DNR will stock Pigeon River at County Road 175 North and at County Line Road.  Turkey Creek will be stocked at County Road 150 North.  Both stream crossings are located on Pigeon River Fish & Wildlife Area.

The stocking scheduled for the Little Elkhart River will take place at the Bonneyville Mill County Park.

Little Kankakee River will be stocked with additional trout at County Road 100 South.

Potato Creek trout will be stocked within Potato Creek State Park near the paved bicycle trail creek crossing.  Parking is available at the West lot.

Anglers targeting these fish will have to hike or bike approximately one mile along the bicycle trail to get to the area but will be rewarded with unrestricted access along a naturally scenic stream.

Although these sites will be the only areas to receive additional trout in May, fish from the initial releases in late April are still available in most of northern Indiana’s trout streams, as high water during the opening weekend provided tough fishing conditions.

The DNR practice of making additional stockings at a few sites, which began in 1990, provides a bonus and extends trout fishing opportunities.
