Osgood River

Directions to Access Points

From the intersection of Route 86 and Route 30 in Paul Smiths, follow Route 86 toward Saranac Lake and take a left onto White Pine Road. State access boat launch will be up on the left.

Shoreline Fishing

Shoreline fishing is what you make of it here. If you can access some areas where the weeds persist you could catch bass.

Boat Access

Use the Osgood Pond Hand Launch Site.

Fish Species Types

Northern pike, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, bullhead, panfish, brook trout.

Cartop boats work best here, but a small boat with a trolling motor would be easy enough to launch. Explore the weeds for some productive bass fishing, or head up the Osgood River for more decent fishing. You can get up the river about 3 miles — this is especially good if you're looking for trout, which seem to be more at home the further you go. Trout fishing the pond itself is not productive. The pond is not overly deep, but trolling for northern pike is a popular fishing technique used here.
