About the Bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus)

The bluegill is a freshwater fish native to the United States and can be found anywhere between the Rocky Mountains and the east coast, from northern Mexico to western Minnesota. The bluegill gets its name from the black and dark blue coloration along its spine and under its gills. The fish itself is often dark gray, dark blue or even a sheen of purple. The underbelly or "chin" of the bluegill is usually light yellow, though the male's underbelly turns bright orange during mating season. The dorsal fin tends to grow along the majority of the fish's spine, while its body appears tall, short and flattened.
