A number of aids can assist anglers who are planning trips to St. Lawrence County. One such aid is the county highway map. This colorful map can be extremely valuable in locating access to trout flows and remote ponds. In addition, it is helpful for planning float trips on the county’s small rivers. Among the map’s special features are the locations of all public lands. For a small fee, the St. Lawrence County Highway Map is available from the Highway Department at (315) 379-1542.
DEC offers a number of free publications related to fishing county waters.
