Little Colby Pond

Directions to Access Points:

From the intersection of Route 3 and Route 86 in Saranac Lake, follow Route 3 toward Tupper Lake. Continue to Edgewood Road on the left and follow here. This turns into Ampersand Drive, and then Forest Home Road will be on the left. Follow Forest Home Road for a few hundred feet to a small path to the car top boat launch area on the right. 

Shoreline Fishing:

The only shoreline fishing area will be accessed by walking the railroad track to between Little Colby Pond and Lake Colby. The walk is just over a half mile and flat. You can access the railroad tracks off Route 86. Landlocked salmon are easy to catch on both sides of the tracks

Boat access:

Paddling is the only boat access for this small grassy pond. Perch fishing is outstanding on this little pond, so much so, it’s hard to catch anything else. 

Fish Species Types:

Panfish, Yellow Perch, Landlocked Salmon

Special Regulations:

The car top boat access is on private property, so respect private property if using this as a boat access. 

Always Follow State fishing regulations and be sure to pick up a NYS Freshwater Fishing Guide at your local outfitters or regional NYSDEC office.
