These two anglers didn't let the rainy Easter Sunday keep them from trying their luck from under their backyard tent set up on the Kiwanis Fishing Bridge in the Massapequa Preserve.

The former reservoir located in the Massapequa Preserve West of the Brady Park and the stream that flows under the Kiwanis Fishing Bridge, including the Massapequa Lake at the corner of Merrick Road and Ocean Avenue, was jammed with young and old anglers during the Easter weekend. The fresh water fishing season opened April 1.

The Massapequa Creek, reservoir and the lake at Merrick Road were stocked in March 2009 with Brown Trout, 12 to 15 inches and Rainbow Trout, 8 to 9 inches and on April 1, more Rainbow and Brown Trout were added by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.

Children under the age of 16 can fish anywhere in New York without a license. Fresh water fishing licenses may be purchased at most tackle shops, sporting goods stores and at town and village halls; senior citizens are granted a discount. The NYS fresh water fishing season ends Nov. 30. For further information, call 631-444-0280. Logo
