Fishing in the Adirondacks

The Adirondacks are home to a wide variety of fish: trout and bass are famous spring and summer catches, while pike, perch, and salmon are more common in winter. While Brook and Lake Trout are the only native trout to the Adirondacks, Brown and Rainbow trout were introduced many years ago and are now widely sought out in some of the best fishing lakes in NY. The Adirondacks offers some of the best Salmon fishing in the area. They’re drawn into nearby rivers and streams in the spring and fall to feed and spawn, so don’t miss your chance.
