2018 NYC DEP Reservoir Reports
« on: May 22, 2018, 05:17 AM »
Good first smallmouth trip yesterday. My father caught 12 and I caught 8. Most were 12-16". Water temp was 64-66, lots of surface activity.

Went up for my birthday yesterday with my girlfriend Zipphora, she caught her first laker at 18" and I got a 21"er, both trolling 10 colors in 130-140 ft. of water. Water temp 59-62 degrees.

Water temp 65 at Ashokan. Trolled 3-4 colors today with Dreamweavers, nothing but only was out for an hour and a half. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if the fishing is just slow but I haven't been able to figure out Ashokan with the trolling yet. Does anyone have any tips?

Trolled Ashokan from 4:40-8 AM. Water temp 65, fished in 55-65 ft. of water. Tried 6 different spoons, trolled primarily 3-5 colors, but went as deep as 6.5 and as shallow as 1.5-2. Tried rowing fast, medium, slow, lots of pauses, turns, rod pumps, etc. Nothing at all. On the bright side, caught a beautiful sunrise and got plenty of exercise! In time I will figure out the right trolling strategy in here, practice makes perfect.

Went up with a friend and tried our luck trolling worm harnesses for a rare walleye, and managed three white perch. Most fish marked near shore, the middle zone of 55-60 ft was barren, only one fish at twenty ft and a surfacing fish chasing sawbellies. We had a few bottom bouncers, as well as three colors and two colors. Next time going to try jigging.

Trolled the Downsville end at Pepacton 12-9 pm. 4 browns, 2 11"ers at 4&6 colors, 19" & 18.5" at 5 colors. A few missed hits as well. Water temp 66.

Hit Rondout yesterday for smallmouth and we got 15 + a 24" chain pickerel. Water temp 68.

You have my respect for trolling 9 hours in a rowboat.

Nice work Gino! Persistence seems to have paid off for you. Any idea how fast you are going when rowing?

Gino thank you for keeping us update on NYC reservoir fishing trips. You are having a good open water season to date. Nice that your girlfriend also enjoys fishing.
