Freshwater Fishing on Long Island
are outstanding opportunities for freshwater fishing on Long Island,
in more than 500 lakes and ponds, and well over 30 miles of streams.
NYS DEC helps to maintain the trout fishing tradition through
its stocking program, and provides boat launches for anglers to
fish in freshwater. The I
Fish NY© partnership between NYS DEC and NY Sea Grant
promotes fishing in the metropolitan area and it organizes outdoor
fishing festivals and classes for students. Click
