Fishing Report

Fishing has been fair at Bilk for stocked and carryover trout. Bass should pick up with the heat and continue to be good in the afternoons till dusk. Worms off the bottom can be good in open water, otherwise the bobber is necessary to keep it off the bottom and out of the weeds.

Pertinent Information

The reservoir has an average depth of 10 feet, maximum depth of 17 feet, and covers 60 surface acres. Rainbow trout are the principal sport fish, but largemouth bass are also present. The best fishing generally occurs during spring, early summer, and fall. Bait fishing is productive using nightcrawlers, salmon eggs, Power Bait, and marshmallows. Fly-fishing is best from a float tube using a black or olive wet fly at the creek inlet. Camping is primitive on the south and west shorelines and since the reservoir is located on private land, please treat the area respectfully.
