Swan Lake


Anglers fishing the Swan Lake shoreline.

Swan Lake, located inside Rockefeller State Park Preserve, provides great shoreline access and good fishing too! When fishing for largemouth bass, try using a spinnerbait fished through the vegetation or a weedless plastic worm through the lily pads. Anglers have success with panfish using a bobber and nightcrawler combination.
