Biologists from state fisheries will coordinate statewide with city and county parks to gain access for stocking purposes.
DNR is striving to ensure the safety of the public and staff. As stocking trucks are on the road and stocking fish, please remember to practice social distancing.
Some egg collection efforts have been canceled for this year. Each year, DNR staff collect walleye and muskellunge (muskie) eggs from wild sources to sustain populations across the state. Though nearly all of Indiana’s walleye waters are sustained through stocking, missing one year of stocking should not significantly impact walleye fishing. Saugeye and muskie fishing also look positive. Muskies are a long-lived species, and their lifespans temper the effect of missed stockings.
