Big lake, lots of fish, lots of species. Parts of it you can forget you’re in the city!

It’s overall an amazing lake for fishing just not really great for parking.

Grew up there, love the park and lake. Used to better fishing seems poaching and changing the lake around had an impact an the number and size of the bass. 😪

Pretty good place. Many places to fish from.

Summer time fishing is hard. I usually avoid a skunk but a good day is maybe a bass an hour

2 stars. Great place if you like not catching fish. I didn’t find any stripers or blue fish and I spent a whole day fishing for them.

The good news- lake has plenty of fish. 2 bass per hour is realistic and sunfish abundant. The bad news - tons of trash all over, including water. Bottom full of branches, junk, shopping carts and more. So anything but top water lures will result in snags. Be ready to lose lures.

Have to agree with Cooper and👍Travis. Park is well used by community including the homeless. Garbage stacked up all over and where the homeless are garbage all in the water killing well shaded fishing spots. How come the pods aren’t managed by park staff. Was at Van Cortland Park yesterday and staff was taking all of the pods out enabling a wider fishing area.

A decent place if you live close, but I wouldn’t make the trip otherwise. A bit dirty and not a lot of access points. Decent stock of fish though.

I fly fish, this lake isn’t the best place for it. Fishing in general, super crowded almost all the spots will be taken up by people just relaxing or reading. So it’s tough to get a spot on the water. Be prepared to move around as well as the fish will move from the area. Caught a few bluegills. I’d say avoid this place due to the crowds unless it’s nearby then by all means enjoy.
