BOOK YOUR TRIP
Lower Saranac Lake

Directions to Access Points:

From downtown Saranac Lake, follow Route 3 towards Tupper Lake. After 4 miles turn right into the NYS DEC boat launch, Second Pond.

Boat access:

Second Pond has a hard surface ramp with parking for 75 cars and trailers. An alternative access point is off of Ampersand Bay Road.

Fish Species: Northern Pike, Walleye, Yellow Perch, Smelt, Rainbow Trout, Bass

Highlight species: Largemouth Bass

Largemouth bass season opens the third Saturday in June to November 30 and the daily limit is five with a minimum length of 12 inches. Largemouth bass might be the most popular game fish of all. And it's do to the thrill of the chase and the catch. Bass love to hide in weeds, drops, and rocks — and that's what you will find here. They also love to eat, so if you don't have any luck in one spot, just try the next one. This lake has an average depth of 28 feet and a maximum depth of 50 feet. There are also sixty state-run campsites on this lake, so plan a trip and stay the night!

Special Regulations:

Always Follow State fishing regulations and be sure to pick up a NYS Freshwater Fishing Guide at your local outfitters or regional NYSDEC office.
