Lake Flower

When they say Saranac Lake is the nearest town to Lake Flower, they aren’t kidding. You’ll find the state boat launch right on Route 86 in town, with parking for 20 cars and trailers. With that kind of access, you can expect some recreational traffic, but there’s enough in the lake to make the trip worthwhile for a family outing. Lake Flower has good numbers of perch and pumpkinseed, as well as northern pike and large and smallmouth bass – mostly largemouths.

It’s a shallow lake, averaging about 5 feet. If it’s trout you’re looking for, head up to the dam in the village of Saranac Lake and fish the Saranac River downstream to the Pine Street bridge; the daily limit there is five trout of any size, all year long.
