(Franklin/Union Counties, IN) – The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) East Fork State Fish Hatchery recently completed annual striped bass and hybrid striped bass stockings.

Locally, Brookville Lake was stocked with 46,667 striped bass.

More than 78,000 striped bass fingerlings and 146,000 hybrid striped bass fingerlings were added to 12 lakes around the state.

The stocked fish averaged one-to-two inches in length.

DNR says Indiana anglers can look forward to continued quality striped and hybrid striped bass fishing opportunities in the coming years as a result of these stockings.
