Just wondering if anyone could suggest some good bass fishing lakes here on Long Island. I fish a few spots here in Eastern Nassau (Massapequa and Wantagh), just wondering if there might be some others that are as good or better. Another question I have is also pertaining to bass locations. Can any one suggest a good lake up-state for a bass trip this June. Something an hour or two outside Manhattan would be perfect. All or any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Lots of places!

Withn one to two hours of the city is some of the best bassn in the NE!!

Look these up:

NYC Reservoirs: (get your permit!!)
Cross River
New Croton

State Parks:
Bear Mt./ Hessian Lake
Rockland Lake
Franklin D. Roosvelt

Get ahold of the NYDEC, they will gladly send you tons of info (maps, directions, stocking list) on the areas your asking about.
