Mount Gilead Lakes

on March 31st

Two connected lakes separated by a dam and a gate, Mount Gilead Lake is known for holding nice seasonal rainbow trout, nice bass, decent channel cats, and panfish. Early in the season the DNR stocks rainbow trout; the action is hot and heavy for a few weeks but by early summer most of the trout have been caught. All the usual trout techniques will work but your best bet is to think outside of the box and make yourself stand out from all the other anglers. Starting in early summer the warm water species take over the spotlight and provides tons of fun to anglers. Try fishing the drop offs, both sides of the spillway, and the old river channel. Early summer and fall are the best time to fish for them, the bite dies in the heat of summer. Good Luck!
