East Fork White Water River, Indiana Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Looks like the USACE has stopped the release of water from the lake; this will make the tailwater very accessable! The fish are beginning to look up; mix up your offering with some smaller dry's with a dropper. We like EHC with a soft hackle hares ear or soft hackle pheasant tail. You can also fish a black wooly bugger or similar leech pattern with great luck!

East Fork White Water River Description

Brookville as it is so called, is one of the few trout fisheries in the state of Indiana. While flows fluctuate constantly due to the dam built by the Army Corps of Engineers, you will get into large fish if you know where to look and how to fish it. The state stocks it yearly with Rainbow and Brown Trout, while this is a put and take fishery, most fly fishermen practice catch and release.

Techniques & Tips

Nymphing is always a great technique to use at the tailwater! This time of year, we'll experience sporadic hatches offering up dry fly fishing opportunities. Dont be afraid to try a dry dropper set up!

7-Day Forecast

Looks like a slight chance of rain coming in on Friday; the daytime temperatures beginning on Tuesday will be much nicer! We have a cold front pushing through on Monday that will hopefully end our string of 90+ degree temperatures!
