Anglers can enjoy extended trout fishing this spring on five northern Indiana streams thanks to additional stockings from the DNR Division of Fish and Wildlife.
The five streams are 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.
Pigeon River, TurkeyCreek and Little Elkhart River will be stocked for the weekends of May 12-13 and Memorial Day weekend, May 26-27.
Little Kankakee River and Potato Creek will be stocked only for Memorial Day weekend.
DNR will stock Pigeon River at CR 175N and County Line Road in Steuben County. Turkey Creek will be stocked at CR 150N in LaGrange County. These locations are in the Pigeon River Fish and Wildlife Area.
The DNR will stock Little Elkhart River at Bonneyville Mill County Park.
The DNR will stock Little Kankakee River at CR 100S and SR 4 in LaPorte County.
Potato Creek will be stocked near the paved bicycle trail creek crossing in Potato Creek State Park. Parking is available at the west lot. Anglers targeting trout in Potato Creek must hike or bike about one mile along the bicycle trail to get to the fish, but will be rewarded with unrestricted access along a naturally scenic stream.
Although these streams are the only 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.
