This is a driving trip to various public access sites on the White River. This is not a trip down the river in a watercraft, but participants are welcome to join in the water with their own watercraft. Participants can join in at any point for as long as they want and can leave at any point.  Participants that wish to fish will need to provide their own fishing equipment and if 18 and older must have a fishing license, which must be purchased in advance online (if you don’t already have one) at https://on.in.gov/inhuntfish.
