Additional trout releases scheduled for area streams

Indiana DNR Release:

Additional trout will be stocked in four northern Indiana streams by the Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife before Memorial Day weekend.

The Pigeon River (Steuben and LaGrange counties) will be stocked at County Road 175 North and at County Line Road. Turkey Creek (LaGrange County) will be stocked at County Road 150 North. These stream crossings are located on the Pigeon River Fish and Wildlife Area. The trout stockings schedules for the Little Elkhart River (Elkhart County) will take place at the Bonneyville Mill County Park. The Little Kankakee River (LaPorte County) will be stocked with additional trout at County Road 100 South.

Although these stream 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. Although anglers fishing the more remote areas continue to report good catches, the DNR’s practice of providing additional stockings at a few sites, which began in 1990, provides a bonus and extends trout-fishing opportunities.
