Looking to get out this sat with my fishing buddy on either Croton or Croton Falls. Its been 1 1/2 months since our last outing due to family and work commitments. This is our first year on the reservoirs so we really do not know which is the better fall lake. We fished CF about 7 times this year and Croton only 2 times. We feel we know CF a little bit better than we know Croton, so we are inclined to get out on CF. However, the weather maybe a little crappy on Sat and its tough to fish CF on a windy day. I think Croton is alot more protected from the elements. We keep our boat in area 21 on Croton and have yet to really learn the area. I thought maybe one of the Res dogs could shed some light.

Thanks,

I would say Croton Falls, actually, but for one specific reason. Croton can be seen as two distinct lakes, for those of us with boats. The middle stion is closed off and since your boat is up in the Northeast section I might opt for Croton Falls.

Right now the best Croton section are west of the Taconic bridges (IMHO) which you can't get to from your mooring area...

Thanks Mark,

Do you think mooring area 21 is a poor location? Should I consider moving to a different location next year?

It looks like its going to be CF this Sat.


Thanks again,

Nothing wrong with the Northeast overall. There's some nice spots up there. But at this time of year I think it's best to fish areas that have access to the deepest part of the main lake. In Croton, that's the Western section...

Mike,

I've had my boat on area #20 for the past 5 years. I've fished every section of Croton over the years but this is one of the best areas to fish in the spring. Give the area a chance before you decide to move your boat.

However, it's not the most productive area in the fall. The best fall bassin' on Croton is the Hunter Brook section mainly because of the depth and structure it provides.

I would definitely recommend that you fish Croton Falls this weekend.

Good luck......

Mark and Ronnie,

Thanks for the input. Looks like we will hit Croton Falls this sat. We are suppose to have nice weather, I hope the wind stays down for us. We will be on the lake from 6:30am - 3:30pm.

Ronnie- we should hook up next spring so you could show me the ropes on Croton. What part of Queens are you from? I'm from Whitestone.

Thanks again guys,

MikeYac
