  • Gills at Pickwick

    It is going to be banner year below dam at Pickwick this year. The bigger Gills are moving around early. Here are just a few pics of some. I am really pumped about these new areas I have located now that I am back in a boat. All Gills caught on a Bison colored Trout Magnet using 2# test line. The rods used were a Yamaga Blanks Blue Current 6' 10" TZ Jig Head Special UL rated 1-3 pound test line and got to use my new Major Craft FineTail Banshee Area Trout Rod 6' 7" rod rated 1-5 pound test. It is going to be a great rod for Gills. Didn't keep count of Gills, and didn't harvest any fish but will in the coming days. Sonar pic is of Gills stacked up....made for great fishing. Life is good!

      Thanks for the comment guys. ROCK if you go on the generator side, below dam, you can catch all the big black Gills you want. From now through early May...and some years they stay later.....they will only be about 2-3 feet off the rocks in all that swirling water. Most fish for them off the sidewalk with crickets on a long pole with the float set at about 6-10 inches of depth. Not many would think Gills would be in that swift water......but they come in there by the thousands to feed each spring before spawn.
