Special Regulations

Special fishing regulations exist for all rivers and streams in Ulster County. Please review your fishing regulations guide for details.


Walleye were first stocked in 1999. Our fisheries surveys have shown good growth rates and have documented fish up to 22 inches. Anglers have had success catching wallleyes using bright colored jigs tipped with a nightcrawler or minnow fished on the bottom. Trolling using spoons has also been effective method for taking walleyes.


Both smallmouth and largemouth bass are present here and can provide for some good angling action. When targeting largemouth fish around weed beds and timber using spinnerbaits and jigs. The smallmouth like to hang around the rocks, try using crayfish imitations bounced along the bottom.
