PG,,,
Lots of trout 4lb to 8lb.a few 10lb caught every year.
12lb is rare.Back in the day,when these dams were young the trout
Grew huge,fast,from feeding on the Sawbellies.
The looked deformed.12lb to 15lb trout,with the head of a 3lb trout on them.my uncle has one mounted from back then.ill try to post a pic.
Downsville is a great trout and Smallie fishery.
They feed bigtime on Sawbellies,they grow big and strong.
If you ever wanted to give the dam a try,id take you.i got 1 boat on Downsville,and 3 on Cannonsville.
Im 2 hrs from Downsville,and 1 1/2 from Cannonsville.

PG, Downsville is actually called the Pepacton Reservoir. They call it Downsville cause of the name of the town that is at the base of the massive dam. I don't fish the resevoir up that way so I can't really tell you much about how to fish them. (chez is the man for that) All my fishing around that area is done on the eastbranch(flow out of downsville), west branch(flow out of cannonsville) and main stem of the delaware river which  are hands down one of the best wild trout fishery's in the eastern US.
