Quincy Reservoir Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Quincy Reservoir is a 160-acre impoundment in the suburb of Aurora. The reservoir is best known for the state record tiger muskie (40.1 pounds, 53 inches) but also holds brown trout, largemouth and smallmouth bass, yellow perch, black crappies, and 10-inch and larger rainbow trout. Big plugs tipped with sucker meat retrieved at various speeds can occasionally haul in the monster tiger muskies. Use jigs or small spinners in the early morning for trout. In the early spring match the midge hatches with a Griffith’s Gnat or a red larvae pattern.
Secure yourself in the boat if you’re going after tiger muskies. Key Species: Tiger muskie, brown trout, rainbow trout, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, black crappie."
