My tips of the week
The water level in the tailwater is perfect for wading! We recommend fishing an ant, or a dry/dropper combo! We like a soft hackle for the point fly and prince above. Elk hair Caddis have produced small brown trout!

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

Summer is here and our daytime temperatures will be warm! Looks like we'll be in the mid 80's for most of the week; only chances for rain are on Tuesday. Go Fish!
