Fishing Report: Pillar provides a good Rainbow fishery for trout up to 2+ lbs. Fly fishermen concentrate their efforts at the north end of the lake in the large shoal areas. During spring through early summer there is a good emergence of Chironomids, Caddisfly, Damsels and Dragons. Trolling small lures, flatfish and spinning gear also meets with good sucess.
