Fish Size Limit Changes For Indiana Rivers

Last updated on Sunday, June 2, 2013

(UNDATED) - Indiana Conservation Officer’s would like to remind fishermen that the size limit for Black Bass changed last year on most Indiana Rivers excluding the Ohio River and its tributaries.

Black bass is a term for largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass.

In past years, a fisherman could only possess a black bass 12 inches or over if taken from rivers or streams. Since the law change, if taken from rivers or streams, black bass must be greater than fifteen (15) inches long or less than twelve (12) inches long, with not more than two (2) being greater than fifteen (15) inches. The daily bag limit for black bass is 5 singly or in aggregate.

Indiana Conservation Officer Dwane Ford advised that several fishermen along the White River have been warned about the size change and that officers realize the law change is new to everyone. For more information on the Indiana fishing regulations, please pick up your copy of the 2013 - 2014 fishing regulations, go on-line at dnr.in.gov or call Indiana Conservation Officers District 4 Headquarters at 765-649-1062.
