About your host

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.

What we’ll do

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.

Where you'll be

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.
