New Croton Reservoir
New Croton Reservoir is the last stop in the NYC DEP Croton Watershed before emptying into the Hudson River. This 2,182 acre reservoir provides anglers with a lot of water and a chance to catch some of the big fish that swim in it! It is not uncommon for bass to be caught up to 7 pounds and crappies up to 3 pounds. Focus your attention fishing weedbeds, downed trees, and other structure to find these fish.
