Trout Lakes

Trout Lake is essentially trout water, but anglers should not overlook the warmwater fishing on these lakes. Trout Lake has largemouth and smallmouth bass as well as panfish.  This lake hosts a kids’ rock bass derby every summer. Look for fish along weededges, shoreline cover, tributary mouths, and rocky areas.

Trout Lake has a reputation for offering quality rainbow trout and lake trout fishing.  Every year the DEC stocks a combined four to ten thousand rainbows and lakers in the deep-water lake.  Landlocked salmon have also been stocked on this 371-acre lake, and special regulations allow for year-round angling.  Public access is carry-in from state land, but there is a paved launch by the County Route 19 Bridge that boaters can use for a small fee.  Because of its low elevation, the ice typically goes out of Trout Lake earlier than it does in nearby Adirondack lakes.  This makes Trout Lake an angler-favorite in early spring.  Trout can be found throughout the lake, but the northern half has the better fish-holding structure.
