Lake Colby

One of the first to freeze, Lake Colby also offers great fishing. Once this lake buttons up – sometimes as early as mid-December – you can count on it until March. Located along Route 86 just outside the Village of Saranac Lake, the 272 acre water is home to many species. Every fall landlocked salmon brood stock, from the Adirondack Fish Hatchery, are released into Little Clear Pond.

Access: Via the Lake Colby public beach along Rt. 86. 

Species: Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, Sunfish, and Bullhead. Check NYS fishing regulations before heading out.
