New DNR fishing and recreation guides available

DNR Release:

The 2009 DNR Fishing Guide is now available, free of charge, at most DNR properties, various sporting goods stores, fishing license vendors and other locations around the state. The 2009 Recreation Guide is at many of the same places or will be shortly.
Longtime fans of the DNR Fishing and Recreation Guide will notice a change this year. For the past few years, this was one publication. This year, to better serve each interest group, they are separate publications. Those who are interested in both topics should be sure to get both publications. Both are available, free of charge, at most of the same locations around the state.
The 40-page Fishing Guide's cover shows a pair of anglers enjoying success on Steuben County's Clear Lake. In addition to providing fishing rules and regulations, the new Fishing Guide includes articles on Indiana's fisheries program, fishing for walleye, and research on catfish done on the Wabash River.
The 50-page Recreation Guide cover features a scenic stream at Turkey Run State Park. The guide includes everything you want to know about DNR properties, including state parks, lakes, state forests, state park inns, fish and wildlife areas, state museum and historic sites and nature preserves, plus articles on mountain biking, exploring the outdoors with kids, camping for beginners, and more.
Lovers of the outdoor activities who can't find one, the other or either guide, can obtain a copy by e-mailing Both guides also can be viewed in their entirety at by clicking on the appropriate link. Both are musts for those new to the state and fitting additions to any neighborhood welcome package.
