Reconsidering Gillespie New City Lake

July 31, 2009 at 04:19 PM

Earlier this summer we published a top 10 list of bass lakes. Based on information from some anglers, we did not include New Gillespie City Lake. That may have been a mistake, based on what biologist Jeff Pontnack has seen of the 216-acre lake, which he calls one of the top three in the state for bigmouths.

“In terms of numbers of bass three pounds or larger, the densities are extremely high,” Pontnack said. “It’s just phenomenal. Anglers do see to have some trouble catching them, but they are in there.”
