I always suggest and early morning or later evening trip. Brown trout and lake trout are most active at night but fishing then is not as enjoyable. So, I suggest an early morning or later evening trip. Also, wind, which is a huge factor and can make fishing impossible, is usually strongest in the middle of the day. If we don't catch any fish, at least we'll catch the sunrise or sunset! We'll meet at my house or the reservoir. I have a 13.5ft rowboat and we'll troll lures as I row... you're welcome to row too, if you want. Fishing the reservoir is fishing for "quality", not "quantity". To be honest... on average, it's about 1 fish per hour of trolling. I'll troll for 2 hours unless you can convince me to keep going, or less if the weather turns bad, or the wind picks up. I have some nice comfy seats with backrests, so just sit back and enjoy the scenery but keep and eye on those rod tips! You get to reel in and keep any fish we catch if they are legal size.... which most are. A NYS fishing license is needed. You can get one for the day for $5 on the NYSDEC website. I have 'guest passes' for you to use to access the NYC reservoir property, but you will need a valid ID.
As a retired fish biologist for the NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation, I have quite a bit of experience with fish and know their habits pretty well. I'm also a licensed NYS outdoor guide. I've been a fisherman my whole life and spend a lot of time on the water, usually fishing. If I don't catch anything, at least I'll have probably seen an osprey or eagle and definitely gotten a workout! Come join me and I'll tell ya a few good fish stories while I row you around on a reservoir full of NYC drinking water and big trout! Please inquire before booking, this experience is wind dependent.

If you live, or are staying close to where I live, just come to my house and I'll give you a ride to the reservoir. My boat is kept near the deepest area of the reservoir (122ft) and is on the northeast side which is closest to my house. This is a weather dependent experience so please inquire first before booking. Fishing from shore can be productive but it is not as much fun or beautiful as being out on the water.

A NYS fishing license is mandatory. A fishing license is needed to go out in a boat, on the Rondout Reservoir, even if you are not fishing. You will also need a valid ID. The start time is flexible.
