Trip Info

Pepacton Reservoir offers excellent Brown Trout fishing. Fishing is best from shore in early April (trout season runs from April 1st-Sept. 30th) casting lures and fishing with minnows. The water is still cold and the trout are close to shore. As the water warms up in late April and May, you can fish from a rowboat or a canoe. You can fish with minnows by drifting or anchoring, or you can troll, using lures. As the water warms up even more in June, you can fish with minnows deeper, or troll with lures, using lead core line or downriggers.

Your adventure awaits!
