East Fork White Water River, Indiana Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Curretnly the tailwater is fishable! With the recent heavy rain we've received, the USACE has slowed the release of water from the lake. We expect this to continue for several days. Once the water level in the West Fork of the Whitewater drops....we expect the release of water to begin. Fish early this week and keep checking the gaguge before you make the trip!

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 the weather will cooperate this week! High temperatures will return to the mid 80's by Thursday; with the only chance for rain coming on Sunday. Go fish!
