FORT WAYNE (AP) -- The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) says it will stock 400 rainbow trout in Spy Run Creek at Fort Wayne's Franke Park on Friday to mark the 26th anniversary of a program to get youngsters excited about fishing.

IDNR's Division of Fish & Wildlife says the creek will remain closed to fishing until 6 a.m. Saturday, when Indiana's stream trout-fishing season opens.

The trout measure about 10 inches long and are grown at DNR's Curtis Creek Trout Rearing Station in LaGrange County.

Trout fishing will be available on a half-mile section of Spy Run Creek.

Adult anglers will need a fishing license and trout stamp. Anglers age 17 and younger do not need a fishing license or trout stamp. The daily catch limit per angler is five trout.
