(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Inland stream trout season starts this weekend in Indiana.

Indiana DNR staff will stock more than 23,000 rainbow trout in 17 streams in 12 different counties by opening day on Saturday, April 24.

Locally, anglers can find 1,500 rainbow and 2,600 brown trout at the Brookville Reservoir tailwater in Franklin County.

Trout will bite on a variety of artificial baits such as spinners and flies, in addition to natural baits like worms and bee moths.

Anglers 18 and older will need an Indiana fishing license and a trout/salmon stamp to fish for trout. The bag limit for trout in inland waters is five fish per day with a minimum size of seven inches. No more than one of these can be a brown trout. Additionally, any harvested brown trout caught below Brookville Tailwaters must be 18 inches or larger. There is no closed season for taking trout from inland lakes.
