Fished by Lower dam for 1.5 hours yesterday afternoon. Pretty crowded but it's a friendly group with a lot of young anglers.
Caught two largemouth on a yellow jig with yellow/brown plastic worm cranked slow.
Gills not the easiest to come by in Rock River, have caught them ice fishing but tough during open water. I would fish the brickyard if you want some gills, otherwise try fishing shallow warming protected areas. Rock River is one of last places I would fish for gills, they are there but much easier elsewhere.
