Even though this fishing hole is near the road, it's still a wonderful spot!

Getting there

From exit 28 in Schroon Lake follow I-87 north for one exit to the North Hudson exit #29. From here follow Boreas Road west toward Newcomb. Continue all the way to Newcomb and Route 28N. Take a left onto 28N and continue for around 6 miles to the parking on the left, just as you cross over the river.


There is only shoreline fishing here and it is better if you can wade out a bit to get away from the trees. There is good access on both sides of the road and consider using the Boreas River Trail on the other side of the road to access downstream to Hewitt Eddy. There is a good flatwater around the bridge where trout do tend hang out, but the eddy is decent fishing as well. The trout are not all that large in part of the river but are fun to catch.
