Catskills Fishing Fly Fishing The Patagonia Trout

Fishing In New York State Reservoir’s

I think it’s a good idea to say something!

I have my license, my NYC DEP permit, and it’s April 1st, I can fish.

The weather is rainy, temperatures are in the ’40s, there is no sun, it’s not too windy, and the barometer is rising.

My summer of 2017

Yesterday the sun came out, and it was a beautiful day. Guru Len caught three bass verses my none. When I thought about it last night the two of us fished the same stretch of river and at the head of the Pepacton reservoir. I didn’t do anything wrong as we were using stick bait but there were differences.

  • My Rapala was longer and had rattles.
  • I used monofilament, which I like, Len used braided line.
  • We might have used different retrieve patterns, but I did vary mine.

I thought of going fishing again today, but it’s snowing, about 4″, fell this morning. Is it really April?
