I went to a new lake that is reported to have some carp.

Knapps Lake is a small pond located in Islip. It is quite shallow and in the summer it becomes thickly covered with aquatic plants. The predominant fish species are common carp, largemouth bass and sunfish. The fish tend to be small. While large bass have been caught at Knapps Lake, they are not common. Few exceed 12 inches.  Knapps Lake provides some fishing opportunity to the immediate neighborhood, but it probably does not merit a long trip.

It was a cloudy afternoon but there was very little wind.

There is a dock but I saw no boats on the water

I found this cove on the east  side of the lake.  It looks like a good place to fish

Walking the path on the east side of the lake.
