General Fishing Information

Most anglers target the rainbow trout shortly after they're stocked. Fishing with worms, minnows, artificial natural baits (like Gulp or PowerBait) or corn suspended under a bobber usually works well for the trout.


Special fishing regulations apply (leaving DEC website to official Fishing Regulations Guide vendor website).

Fisheries Management
