Boyd Corners Reservoir

This NYC reservoir provides anglers with good bass and panfishing with the occassional walleye being caught. For catching bass try using tube jigs and crankbaits fished along the rocks. When targeting panfish try using a small bright colored jighead tipped with a nightcrawler or minnow.
