BRONX DPR PARKS YOU CAN FISH IN:
The BRONX RIVER: By The Waterfall at 180 Street
and Boston Road. Local anglers swear by the spot. Unknown what species of fish are in the River. Ask any angler On Scene.
Caution: It is Illegal to climb over the protective fencing or down onto the rocks and/or waterfall. There have been serious
injuries to those that had. Even a few deaths, so heed the Warning!.
CROTONA PARK POND ('Indian Lake'):
Pkwy. And Crotona Pk. East, Crotona,Bx.. SPECIES OF FISH FOUND: LM BASS; BULLHEAD CATFISH; BLUE GILL.
The POND IS 3 ACRES.
On Some Official Records It Is often Refered To As 'Indian Lake.' It Is Thought That Back In The Late 1800's Some Local Youth
Gave It That Nickname. So, In All Respects It Has No Relation To The 1960's "Cowsills" Song Of The Same Name. Ya Know, "The
Cowsills", That Real Life Mom & Kids Family Band That Many Say TV's "Partridge Family" Was Based Upon. TAKE THE IND "B" Or "D" TRAIN TO The "170th. STREET Station." TAKE THE BX17, BX11,
BX15/55 BUS TO GET THERE.
Van CORTLANDT PARK LAKE (Riverdale).
Of West 242 St. & Broadway, Riverdale, Bx.. SPECIES OF FISH FOUND: CARP; BULLHEAD CATFISH.
The Lake Is 30 Acres. The
Park Community, As Well As Adjacent 'Woodlawn', Is Yet Another Major Irish Enclave!.

From Woodlawn, Along McClean Avenue In Yonkers, NY---Where You'll Find Such Great Irish Establishments As 'RORY DOLAN'S'
Pub & Restaurant. A "LINK" To Their Website Is Below!!! To Get To The Park, Take either the IRT "1","4",
