For those of you that live in our area, don’t take for granted the chance to get out and fish in our own back yard. Many local anglers ask me where should they go to fish and I just tell them to pick a spot or ask what do they want to catch and it helps to narrow the waters down to one. The Adirondack Regional Tourism Council publishes an Angler’s Guide to Adirondack Lakes, Ponds, Rivers and Streams that can be had by contacting any of the county tourism offices located with-in the Adirondack Park. This fishing guide is full of information leading to the thousands of lakes, ponds and streams that beckon anglers to the Adirondacks.

The Adirondacks present a pleasant problem that is not found in other regions of the country, too many waters to choose from. This guide can help you plan your next fishing trip. Locator maps to wilderness Brook Trout, roadside Lakes and Ponds, Adirondack Rivers and some of our states “Big Waters” (St.  Lawrence River, Lake Champlain and Lake George) are all covered in this publication.

Many of us get stuck in a rut by fishing the same body of water over and over. With so much water and different kinds of fish to choose from, you could fish every day all summer and not fish the same spot twice. Also published by the Council is an Adirondack Fishing Directory. It’s your source for Charters, Bait and Tackle Shops, Guide Services and Marinas in the Adirondacks. These helpful guides can help plan your next outing. Published and distributed by the Adirondack Tourism Council, PO Box 2149, Plattsburg, NY 12901-2149 or phone 800-487-6867 or go on line Local bait and Tackle Shops are still your best source for how and what works best in any given area.

Reports by fishermen on catches have been very good, with some reporting limiting out on several of our waters for brook trout. I have not been so lucky. I went to Hewitt Lake on two different occasions and did not catch a fish, but I fished the early morning hours.

I talked to one angler who fishes the afternoon who said he had done well on more than one occasion. Potential for trophy size fish could be good on this body of water because access is limited. You must park and carry your canoe.  Pack light as it is a long walk in to the public access area and the trail is not well maintained.
