The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says that Garvin Park in Evansville will receive more than 300 surplus rainbow trout this spring.

This is through the DNR’s “Go FishIN in the City” program, and the surplus trout are in addition to the 550 trout already stocked there each fall.

The “Go FishIN in the City” program seeks to provide catchable-sized channel catfish and rainbow trout to Indiana urban centers.

Last fall, Curtis Creek Trout Rearing Station in Howe, Indiana, provided 5,100 young trout to East Fork Hatchery.

Those fish did so well the DNR can stock Garvin Park with surplus fish.

The tentative spring stocking date is March 21.

Anglers 18 years and older need an Indiana fishing license and a trout stamp to fish for trout.

Licenses and stamps can be purchased through a local license vendor, or by clicking here.
