SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — State wildlife officials plan to stock salmon in four northern Indiana rivers later this year as part of the state’s ongoing efforts to give anglers more diverse fishing opportunities.

The state Department of Natural Resources will release 60,000 coho salmon in the St. Joseph River this fall, 30,000 in Salt Creek in Porter County, and 75,000 each in Trail Creek and Little Calumet River.

DNR Lake Michigan fisheries biologist Brian Breidert says that in recent years the agency had stocked 240,000 salmon a year total in Trail Creek and Little Calumet River. He says the stocking efforts should give anglers in the Great Lakes area a better chance to catch a more diverse range of fish, particularly during the fall.
