Bluegill are an outstanding fish for ponds and small lakes in Oregon and Washington. They are easy to grow and can, but don't need to be, fed. Bluegill can be fed commercial trout feed and will grow to a large size of 8 inches or more. Bluegill are fun and easy for kids to catch, biting well on worm and bobber. They can also be caught fly fishing as insects are their primary diet. It is important to stock largemouth bass and blackcrappie with bluegill or else the pond will become over populated with too many small bluegill. In the Pacific Northwest, cool water temperature shorten the active forage season of largemouth bass and black crappie. However, bluegill produce as many young as in warmer regions of the country. So, We recommend a stocking rate of 1 largemouth bass, 1 black crappie , 1 channel catfish to each bluegill.
