ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Belmont Lake is well known for its large carp. It also has some great largemouth bass fishing. During the most recent fisheries survey conducted in 2012, the catch rate of bass over 15 inches long was one of the highest of any Long Island waterbodies. The lake also has plenty of sunfish and yellow perch, but they tend to be on the smaller side, less than 6 inches long.

While Belmont Lake cannot sustain trout through the heat of summer, trout are stocked in the spring to provide a seasonal fishing opportunity. Each April, DEC and Belmont Lake State Park host a Family Fishing Festival at the lake. For more information about the Fishing Festival and current schedule see: Region 1 Calendar of Events.
