This remote fishing spot is just for shoreline fishing; there is no boat access.

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 9.5 miles to where state land comes in on the left. This point is located as you start to drive down a long hill. A guardrail will come in on the left, part of the way down. Park near the top and locate the path behind it. 

Fishing

The path leading to the pond is very faint and possibly very rarely used. The path to reach the pond is roughly 0.4 miles long. The western portion of the pond, which is the public portion, is the shallowest part of the pond. It is best to use top water lures due to the shallow nature. 

Fish species types: Brook trout, bullhead, panfish, smelt

Most of the eastern portion of the pond is on private land, please respect the landowners privacy. 

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