Welcome, I'm from Ft. Wayne also. There are plenty of guys on this forum who can answer your questions. But, even though I haven't fished it, I guess the Hurshtown Reservoir, close to Ft. Wayne, has tremendous fishing. It allows only boats with trolling motors. I know it has good smallmouth populations and it may even have some walleyes.
The Hurshtown Reservoir is closed from October 1st until April 30th. Crappie and Walleye fishing can be pretty good when the reservoir opens in May. There are a ton of smallies in there but most are very small. I've had days where I've caught 30-40 smallmouth with nothing over 10 inches. Cedarville Reservoir has some pretty good crappie fishing in the spring and holds some decent channel cats as well. March through May can be productive below the dam by the Johnny Appleseed park for walleye and pike. Your not going to find much for trout anywhere around Ft. Wayne.
