East Fork White Water River, Indiana Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
The release of water out of the lake has slowed!!! The water level in the tailwater is currently 3.83 feet (Monday) and is perfect for wading/fishing! Project Healing Waters had an outing over the weekend and a lot of trout were caught! Fishing should be excellent this week! With the water level being more under control, the fish should be feeding pretty heavily. Nymphing will work very, very well! With the recent release of fresh fish, their will be a lot of people fishing Brookville. Fishing durning the week will be better than on the weekend!

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

Swing Streamers in the early morning and switch to nymphing by mid day. Watch the water flows and adjust depth accordingly.

7-Day Forecast

Weather this week will be awesome! We'll have highs in the mid to upper 70's and low's in the 50's. Slight chance of rain on Wednesday and Saturday.
