From local children to United States Presidents the Catskills have long been known for great fishing opportunities for all types of anglers. From Trout Fishing the local streams with Dry-Flies, to dunking bread in a local pond for Sunnies, there is a place to fish for everyone. At Lake Jeff Cottage we offer the best of all worlds. Right in your own back yard is a small, 44 acre, private, non-motor boat lake that offers some of the best fishing in the area. "Lake Jeff" holds healthy populations of Largemouth Bass, Perch, Crappies, Pickerel, Catfish and Sunfish. With Callicoon Creek feeding her, Lake Jeff also gets some holdover Brown Trout. Several of our friends and family have caught trophy size Bass ( over 5 lbs ) from our boat or dock.
