My tips of the week
Currently the tailwater is fishable! The water level is reading just over 2.73 feet, making every inch fishable. Nymphing will be your best tactic with the air temperatures beginning to cool. We'd recommend using a tactical Purple Reign under an indicator.

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. Don't be afraid to try a dry dropper set up! Streamers can be a game changer too, don't be afraid to throw a little meat at them!

7-Day Forecast

The weather this week will return to October temperatures; we'll see cooler temperatures in the mornings with afternoon high's in the mid 60 degree range. The cooler evenings will help the tailwater cool down in temperature.
