Indiana boasts a wide variety of fishing opportunities at reasonable prices for residents and non-resident anglers.

They offer 1 and 7-day permits for nonresidents, along with non-resident annual permits. 1 day and annual permits are available for Indiana residents.

While there is a wide variety of fish available, it’s important for anglers to be able to identify fish, measure them, and notice strange fish or potential invasive for reporting. The state of Indiana provides anglers a lot of leeways, while also expecting anglers to take a lot of responsibility.

Detailed fishing regulations can be found on the Indiana State Website. Important regulations, like the ban on mussel collection, should be known to all anglers before their first Indiana fishing trip.

There are 4 free fishing days in Indiana, all of which can be found on their website, here. While fishing licenses are not required in those days, all other regulations including bag limits, fish sizes, and varieties, and eligible fishing locations are still in force.

Indiana makes it easy for anglers to host fishing events in-state, and you can find information about hosting here.

The state also provides a good deal of resources for anglers, including fishing maps and lake depth maps that are interactive for the fisher.
