Top fishing

Moreau Lake has excellent fishing for both largemouth bass and rainbow trout that are stocked by the county. Because of its depth it provides a refuge for the trout during the hot summer days. On the northern end of the lake, it becomes relatively shallow and weedy which provides for good largemouth and pickerel habitat.


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

Ice fishing is permitted on Moreau Lake.
