Recent flooding could not have been helpful but almost 30 years ago I fished for and caught brook trout on LI in Carmen's River. Quite the history of fishing trout on LI.

Absolutely! Which boro do you live in? The blog below belongs to a friend and fishing buddy of mine. I'm sure some of these waters will look familiar to you.

Grew up fly fishing the 5 boroughs and L.I. . Endless opportunities. Try the Connetquot out in Oakdale,LI.. If you decide what you want to go for PM me and I'm sure I'll be able to hook you up.

They stopped stocking the Conne when they closed the hatchery. It still holds fish but the $20 fee to fish is alot harder to swallow now...

Please be advised that the Harlem Meer in Central Park, because of weed growth, has become unfishable most of the season. (It's okay in April and May, though.)

Your best best is probably Prospect Park in Brooklyn, and some of the lakes in Staten Island.

What has really improved is our striped bass fishing. We have a lot of new piers on the west side of Manhattan.

Here's a Staten Island Pickerel I caught yesterday. I figured I'd get your juices flowing.
