The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is planning to stock seven different Indiana lakes with thousands of rainbow trout by the end of October, and one of those lakes is right here in Evansville.

According to the Indiana DNR, 550 rainbow trout will be added to the Garvin Park Lake in Evansville.

The Indiana DNR says the trout are greater than seven inches long on average and that they come from Curtis Creek Trout Rearing Station near Howe in LaGrange County.

Here's a list of all the locations being stocked with the 2,155 rainbow trout by the end of October:

  • Shoaff Park Pond (Fort Wayne, Allen County) – 300 fish
  • Spy Run Creek (Franke Park, Allen County) – 200 fish
  • Oak Lake (Clark State Forest, Clark County) – 405 fish
  • Johnson Lake (Madison, Jefferson County) – 300 fish
  • Pinhook Lake (South Bend, St. Joseph County) – 200 fish
  • Garvin Park Lake (Evansville, Vanderburgh County) – 550 fish
  • Memorial Park Pond (Huntington, Huntington County) – 200 fish

The Indiana DNR says anglers age 18 and older need an Indiana fishing license and a trout/salmon stamp to fish for trout. The bag limit for trout in inland waters, other than Lake Michigan and its tributaries, is five fish per day with a minimum size limit of 7 inches.

There is no closed season for taking trout from inland lakes. You can review inland trout regulations here.
