Indiana Department of Natural Resources fisheries biologists, bass anglers, and fishing guides will convene in early March to discuss current research on smallmouth, largemouth, and spotted bass in Indiana’s streams at the inaugural River Black Bass Summit.
The River Black Bass Summit will be at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds in Danville on March 8, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and is open to the public. This free event is being hosted at the Conference Center on the grounds of the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds, 1900 E Main St, Danville, Indiana. Lunch will be provided, with donations accepted.
Guest speakers will present results from stream surveys conducted on the St. Joseph and Eel Rivers, an overview of the regulation process, and update on the black bass tag reward study. “There are several significant black bass projects going on in Indiana and this will give us a great opportunity to get that information out to anglers and the public, “says DNR fisheries research biologist Sandy Clark-Kolaks. New black bass regulations went into effect in 2012, on rivers and streams in Indiana. This summit will allow anglers and biologists to discuss ongoing research on these regulation changes and discuss effects.
This project is a unique partnership among DNR, Manchester College, the Indiana Wildlife Federation, and the following angling groups: Indiana Smallmouth Alliance, Indianapolis Fly Casters, St. Joseph River Valley Fly Fishers, and Reel Women-Reel Men of Indianapolis.
