Titicus Reservoir


Image of Titicus Reservoir.

Titicus Reservoir, located in North Salem, like many other NYC Reservoirs has a good mix of both warm and cold water fish species. 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.
