Ice Fishing in Saranac Lake
Discover the delights

Ice fishing essentials

The endless waterways of the Saranac Lake Region are prime real estate for the winter ice fishing season. Ideal for winter anglers, our deep, glacier-dug lakes shelter the fish.  

Experienced anglers down to novice and first timers will enjoy the abundant options for setting up the best ice fishing hole.

A hand line, some minnows, an auger, and a bucket is all that’s needed to get started. The hand line can be upgraded to a tip-up, the auger can be powered by a battery, and the upside-down bucket for sitting upon can be inside the shelter of a shanty.

Get started with someone knowledgeable. Our local guides will be happy to pass on the tips and tricks for a great day on the ice. The Colby Classic Ice Fishing Derby is another great way to get started.
