Park Fishing TipsFishing at Woodford State Park

As Adams Reservoir is primarily a brook trout fishery, anglers will want to use traditional trout fishing tactics and equipment. A great place to start is with a basic nightcrawler and bobber rig. This setup is time-tested and proven for trout throughout the spring, summer and fall. Adjust the position of the bobber on your line in relation to your bait until you find a productive depth in the water column.

You can also try fishing artificials such as inline spinners or small metallic spoons such as a "Swedish Pimple" or "Kasmaster" in order to trigger trout into biting. Other lures that may work include small minnow-imitating stickbaits or crankbaits, as well as various fly offerings presented with a fly rod and reel.

Try fishing around shoreline cover first, but if unsuccessful, use a canoe or kayak to move off the bank into deeper water until you connect with the beautiful brookies found in Adams Reservoir.
