Did someone say trout? Palmer Pond is where they're at!

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 for around 0.5 miles to the parking near a gate on the east end of the pond and another along the roadside just a bit farther up the road.  


There is ample shoreline fishing along the eastern and northern shores; a boat is not necessary to fish this flowage. It's cartop access only; which is the best option for this newly acquired fishing access. This dam-created widening of The Branch is a great location for trout fishing, and a fun time for the entire family. The headwaters are a great place to fish as the cool waters come down from the rapids. 

Fish species types: Brook trout

Special regulations: Always follow state fishing regulations and be sure to pick up a NYS Freshwater Fishing Guide at your local outfitters or regional NYSDEC office.
