Eastman Lake

Physical Features:

Elevation: 258 feet
Area: 18 acres
Shoreline Length: 1.3 miles
Town: Irondequoit

Aquatic Plant Life:

The lake is very shallow with extensive beds of submersed, floating, and emergent aquatic vegetation. The nuisance invasive submergent Eurasian Watermilfoil and Curly-leaf Pondweed have been found in the lake.


Shoreline access within Monroe County's Durand Eastman Park on Lakeshore Boulevard.

Fish Species:

Northern Pike, Brown Bullhead, Pumpkinseed, Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Black Crappie.


There is Sunfish fishing through the ice when safe ice develops. Largemouth Bass, Sunfish, and Black Crappie can be caught during the open water season. A spinnerbait or stickbait, like a rapala, works well in shallow weedy water, for the gamefish. For the panfish try worms fished under a bobber or small plastic tube baits or twister tails.

Ice Fishing:

Ice Fishing is permitted on Eastman Lake.


Statewide Fishing Regulations Apply.
