Directions to Access Points:
From the intersection of Route 3 and Route 86 in Saranac Lake, follow Route 86 toward Lake Placid. Continue to Ray Brook and take a left onto McKenzie Pond Road. Follow here to the Jackrabbit Trail on the right.
The only real shoreline fishing area is near the trail. Much of the shore is heavily wooded and makes casting very hard. If the water is low enough, a few small rocks just off shore could make for a nice area to cast from. Explore the shore and other possibilities may exist. Paths do navigate the shore. To reach the pond you will have to hike roughly 2-miles of the Jackrabbit Trail. For hiking the trail is not all that demanding but for carrying a kayak or canoe it would be.
No boat access without a long and demanding canoe carry to the shore
Fish Species Types:
Always Follow State fishing regulations and be sure to pick up a NYS Freshwater Fishing Guide at your local outfitters or regional NYSDEC office.
