Poor

The bluegill population structure is poor. During the 2015 fall electrofishing survey, no bluegill over 7 inches were collected.

CHANNEL CATFISH

Average

Four channel catfish were collected in the 2015 survey ranging in size from 21-29 inches.

CRAPPIE

Poor

Pinckneyville City Lake has a poor crappie population consisting of both black and white crappie. Of the crappie collected in the 2015 fall electrofishing survey, only one was over nine-inches in length. Anglers are encouraged to harvest all crappie caught regardless of size to help thin out the population and increase the average size.
