ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Eaton Brook Reservoir is fairly steep sided, with deep water often only a short distance from shore in some areas. This, coupled with the very clear water, can often make fishing challenging. Most anglers target the rainbow trout shortly after they're stocked in the spring but some hold-over fish are taken most winters by anglers ice fishing the reservoir. Walleye can often be difficult to catch, but when a lucky angler gets one, it's usually a nice sized one in the 20+ inch range. Largemouth bass are more abundant than smallmouth with fish in the 13 to 15 inch range common for both species. Chain pickerel are abundant, though most hover around the legal length of 15 inches.
