The fishing in the Croton Watershed is currently as good as it gets. The rivers are stocked and big fish are coming out of the lake. Some being wild! Many of these fish are incredibly fat (not so much pictured above). I believe there is a good chance that the trout have engorged themselves on alewives. The minnows are susceptible to rapid drops in water temperature which more often then not leads to a die-off. With such a mild winter I do not believe that this was the case. Still one way or another I think these fish have died resulting in the lake trout engorging themselves before they entered the river this winter.
