New to the area freshwater fisherman


Hey all! I am new to the area just moved to Mohegan Lake the first week in Feb. I grew up in MO and WY and came east after high school to serve in the US Navy. I served for over 10 years and have since worked up and down the east coast. I am looking for info on places to fish crappie, walleye, small mouth, perch, etc. I have a electric motor fishing kayak and a Lund. It looks like the resevoirs are out though they look like they would be great. Any other lakes around i can use my boats? Thanks for any info!!!!

Hey WTG,
Lake Mahopac or Candlewood over CT would probably be the closest for your Lund and both have pretty good bass fishing. The kayak would work up in Bear mountain lakes if you get the permit, or the Long Island Sound if you want to try for blues and Stripers or porgies and blacks later on.

Some decent walleye fishing on the walkill between Rifton and Newpaltz several places to launch your yak.

Your service is much appreciated.

PM me in the spring for some reservoir fishing. It's some good fishing.
Be well,
