I got some good reports for folks that are interested in fishing for triploid rainbow at Rufus Woods Reservoir. Adam Langer and his Dad fished Rufus Woods recently and had a great day, landing triploids weighing 6, 7, 10 and 12 pounds. Not bad. I talked to Bob Fateley at the Triangle Exxon in Brewster, where many anglers gather going to and from the reservoir and he said that there are good days and bad days for those fishing at the lower end of the reservoir. There are some very nice fish being taken when the bite is on. He had also given me a report that anglers were fishing through the ice on Rat Lake, and I got a follow up report from Keith Roe, a fish checker for the Department of Fish and Wildlife. He visited Rat Lake recently and found that anglers were having good success through the ice, catching rainbow trout. The anglers he talked to had eleven fish among them, measuring 10 to 12 inches, and they had only been fishing for a couple of hours. Rat Lake can be found by taking a left onto Paradise Hill Road off Highway 97, to the Rat Lake road to the right.
