Middle Saranac Lake

Known as one of the best area lakes for smallmouth bass, you’ll usually find them in the 2- to 4-pound range, but there are even larger ones in here. In fact, you’ll find a lot of species in here, so you never really know what you’re going to hook into. Middle Saranac is also home to largemouth bass, northern pike, yellow perch, lake trout, brown trout and rainbow trout.

By the late summer months, the vegetation can get pretty heavy, but if you’re prepared to deal with that you’ll find the fish hiding there. You may even find the odd walleye that has come up from Lower Saranac Lake. Access is by a state-owned public hand launch on the south shore by South Creek. The launch is 10 miles west of the village of Saranac Lake on Route 3 with parking for 20 vehicles.
