What general part of the lake were you fishing at? Upstream or downstream of Degraw Ave bridge? I usually fish from one of the two piers on the western side designated for kayak launching (no one seems to mind). I also have a really productive ‘secret’ spot in the portion of the lake above Degraw Ave. bridge (I think this is sometimes referred to as ‘old Overpeck park’). Barely anyone fishes that portion of the lake but I have had great luck in that area during the Summer months.
