Wow this guy is on fire!!!!!! Our good friend Billy Fletcher is puttin’ the wood to multi-species hardwater style!!!! WE think he found the magic fish scent attractant-what is this maker’s mark stuff anyway???
The last two weeks has produced nice solid ice, with the majority of reservoirs locked up tight. Croton falls has been the stubborn one, the main section is still iffy. Cross River, Titicus, East,West Branch, Sodom are all good to go, just remember the middle, deeper sections should be test drilled as you work your way out. We are still stocked to the gills with all the ice equiptment you need-augers, tip-ups, sleds, jigging rods/reels, lures, and of course LIVE BAIT and all types of grubs. Hours 7-5pm mondays, 7-6pm tue-friday, 6am-5pm sat and sun. Hope to see you soon!!!
January 11th 2015-There is good news for the hardwater angler-We got ice!!!!! Certain sections of the Muscoot reservoir have locked up nicely, most local ponds and smaller bodies of water are good to go. PROCEED WITH CAUTION!!!! Drill some test holes first, do not proceed unless you have 3-4″ of ice. Our good friend Gregory Fries taps into some good action this past weekend, let’s hope for cold nights to keep it frozen!!!! We have all the supplies you need to get into ice fishing-Tip Ups, Auger’s, Jigging Rod/Reels, lures, and of course LIVE BAIT plus Mealworms, Waxworms, Spikes & Mousies. Call us for winter hours during week and weekends. We are open 7 days of week. Visit our facebook page for daily updates!!!!
We had a very slow, cold start to the fishing season, hopefully tuesday night’s ice mess is the official end of winter! That being said, there are plenty of people out on the streams and reservoir giving it the ‘ol college try with some moderate success. Thanks to David Liao for weighing in this 8+ lb brown trout caught last sunday trolling with a swimbait-nice fish! Also, Ryan “Rastaman” Cronin with a nice wallkill river walleye…….Alexander Berton with a nice early season largemouth on the fly rod-can anyone say crayfish pattern? The crappie die hards have been weighing in some nice fish in the past week, we carry the fathead minnows and small shiners to fish for the Slabs…….The local streams have been running a little bit on the high side, but the streamer and nymph fishing tactics seem to be paying off for those who are hearty enough to stay in the water for a few hours. Small black stonefly dry flies and midges have been teasing up some fish on the surface, but we are waiting for some warmer, “buggier” weather to pop the topwater game open…….We have seen a lot of reservoir fisherman easing into the 2014 season, cleaning out the boats and getting their game tight for early season trout on the troll or bait……EASTER WEEKEND HOURS: FRIDAY 4/18 6AM-6PM, SATURDAY 4/19 5:30-5PM, EASTER SUNDAY 5:30-12 NOON. We have all sizes of shiners, plus nightcrawlers and trout worms. We also just loaded up on wax and mealworms. We hope for sawbellies within the next 2 weeks. Call us for the latest fishing reports at 914.666.8091 or 914.763.6083.
Let’s all celebrate the start of another fishing season by telling Old Man winter to hit the road! Trout season is finally open, the ice has started to open up on most of the reservoir’s with shoreline open water fishing possible on many reservoir’s. Be careful when considering launching your boat on reservoir’s that still hold ice, that’s a big no no in the eyes of the NYC DEP. As of 4/1, Kensico Reservoir is open to boaters, with most of the other northern waters still iced up. Call the Mahopac boat management office 914.232.1309 for more ice-out guidelines.
The trout streams within the watershed are mostly stocked and open for fishing. All fisherman should check to make sure your license and watershed access permit are current. We are fully stocked with all freshwater, fly & spin fishing tackle and waders you need. Our Live Bait tanks are loaded with shiners of all sizes, sawbellies will hopefully be available at the end of the month. We have spikes, wax & mealworms in the grub department, troutworms and nightcrawlers are also fresh in the fridge.
We hope to see you soon, the warm weather looks to be here at last.
