Fish Species:

Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Brown Trout, Chain Pickerel, Common Carp and Panfish.

Fishing:

Titicus gets stocked every spring with 7,000 brown trout. This reservoir is relatively shallow. When targeting trout troll spoons or plugs 10-30' down for the most action. Recent fisheries surveys show a good population of largemouth bass with a lot of fish over 15". When targeting the largemouth, try the numerous shallow weed beds using topwater frogs, spinnerbaits, and weedless plastic worms.

Regulations:

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