Statement as issued Wednesday by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources:
Anglers can find out what fish are biting in a certain lake on what bait by looking online at the updated DNR fishing reports.
The DNR has improved this Web page, dnr.IN.gov/fishwild/8270.htm, to allow for more information to be easily shared about lakes across the state.
The new look splits the state into three zones, North, Central, and South. Each zone can be clicked on an interactive map to see all lake reports in that region. A dropdown list of lakes in the system is also available to allow quick specific searches.
“The new fishing reports system allows DNR staff to provide updates throughout the state,” said Bill James, DNR fisheries chief. “This allows us to get more information to the public on lakes we are surveying in real time, and for anglers to know what is biting throughout the year.”
The information will be updated toward the end of every week, so anglers will have current information for each weekend.
