Another ideal location is at the Pepacton Reservoir, which spans roughly twenty miles long and averages about one-half mile wide. The reservoir is a 5,700 surface acres New York City owned water shed that provides the East Branch of the Delaware with its cool releases.
The Pepacton offers great trout fishing as the large brown trout that live here quickly grow to an average size of 5 pounds – with some up to 15 pounds! Casting lures and bait from shore – or trolling from row boats – are the most effective methods for catching these giants. Small mouth and large mouth bass, perch, rock bass, black crappie and brown bullhead are also sought after by shore anglers.
