FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says it will stock 400 rainbow trout in Spy Run Creek on Friday, marking the 26th anniversary of a project to get youngsters excited about fishing.
However, the public won’t be allowed to fish until 6 a.m. Saturday, when Indiana’s stream trout-fishing season opens.
The trout measure about 10 inches long and are grown at the DNR Curtis Creek Trout Rearing Station in LaGrange County.
Trout fishing will be available on a half-mile section of Spy Run Creek from the parking lot of the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo upstream to the confluence with the Lowther-Newhaus Ditch.
Adult anglers will need a fishing license and trout stamp. Anglers age 17 and younger do not need a fishing license or trout stamp. The daily catch limit per angler is five trout.
The Spy Run stocking program, said the creek was picked because of its small size, bank access, suitable water quality and fish habitat.
