Little Clear Pond to Grass Pond

Both of these ponds reside in the 18,400 acre Saint Regis Canoe Area. This is the only designated canoe area in the Adirondack Park and with its numerous bodies of water it offers an amazing and very unique and special wilderness experience. The St. Regis Canoe Area includes St. Regis Mountain, St. Regis Pond, Long Pond, sections of the east and west branches of the St. Regis River, and 56 other water bodies, many of which can only be reached via other ponds and carries.

Another unique fact about the entire Saint Regis Canoe Area is that no motor boats are allowed, no exceptions. Little Clear Pond is unique in the Adirondacks, in that, no fishing is allowed at all. The NYSDEC uses this pond to breed landlocked salmon for the fish hatchery. In order to do this adequately they don’t allow fishing. Little Clear pond has two small islands on the western shore and a very large peninsula on the upper western shore. These are excellent nesting area for loons, and due to the fishing regulations on the pond, loons are very common. Please do not disrupt the loons or their nests. If you see a nest, don’t disturb it and move away.
