Go Fishing in Highland Park


Highland Park’s Carnegie Lake has gone through several changes since it opened in the 1870s. When it was built, it was to be a juncture in the city’s water supply; later, it became a boating hotspot and then a swimming pool.

Now, for the first time in more than 20 years, Carnegie Lake is open for fishing.

In mid-June, Carnegie Lake was stocked with channel catfish, largemouth bass and bluegill, one of the last steps in a two-year effort to restore the pond by the Pittsburgh Parks Conservatory and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, according to the Pittsburgh Post-GazetteFind out more

Carnegie Lake was originally built to serve as a halfway point for water pumped from the Allegheny River en route to a reservoir, according to the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy. Improvements in pumping technology made it obsolete, however, before it even opened. The lake was mainly used for boating until 1932, when half of its space was converted into a swimming pool and the bottom was covered with cement.
