Don't let the weather keep you from fishing. That's not the Adirondack way.
Ice fishing is a treasured tradition in the North Country. From the expanse of Schroon Lake which supports a small village of shanties and tents, to little ponds which freeze first and let anglers get a jump on the season, the Schroon Lake Region is a treasure trove of hardwater.
Ice fishing is a family and group activity than can adapt to other winter fun. Expanses of frozen lake become a blank canvas for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and fat tire biking.
Leave No Trace
The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
