Trout fishing the Adirondak's

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I was hoping I could get some advice on some trout streams/lakes in the adirondaks area. I am going to stop somewhere in the park and fish/camp for a few days on my way out to work at a camp in new hampshire for the summer.

I would mostly be fly fishing, but i will also have my spinning tackle.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated...

Im no help up that way. I know AugustWest camps up there each summer and I believe InsuranceGuy has some experience up there? Someone will chime in...

The Adirondacks are HUGE and you'd have a lot of options. It would help if you have one area of the park picked out that you were going to stop at to give you some ideas. Probably the best trout river there is the Ausable and another place further south is called the West Canada Creek which is also good and the Schroon river is nice too.

I am thinking about somewhere on the east side of the park, somewhat close to interstate 87. I guess the Ausable is over in that area and I'm sure there are some other smaller streams that are easy to access as well. I cant seem to find a map that shows the smaller rivers, etc.

IF I can get hold of my BIL's dad, I should be able to get you some good info. He just got home from a bout with cancer so it may take me a bit, but he's not sitting still, just tired. He's spent the better part of 80 some years fishing up there, so he'd know. I'd say check the State camp sites near Blue Mtn. Lake. Small, but I've had good luck there. Canoe is great but many banks are good as well. I'll see what I can come up with.

    • Lets try it like this.
    • Yah - great looking decoys! MJ - I'm just letting you know I'm breaking into your house and stealing your spear rack.  And mount. I found a rickety old 5 tine when I cleaned out the garage.  I might give it a try this season.
    • I can't identify any of those for sure, and certainly wouldn't recommend eating any of them.  The first pic might be some older honey mushrooms, but it's pretty tough to tell.  I've got about 8 mushrooms that I can positively id.  Beyond that, it's just not worth being wrong.  There are still some fresh hen of the woods mushrooms around the metro if you get out into some oak woods.  You can find them around the base of big mature oaks and they are pretty easy to identify.  Found about 20 on Wednesday.  Many were a little old, but was able to take 4 nice ones home.  Here's a pic of one that I left behind.
    • I'm putting it on my calendar.  Don't forget the Nord Lord trophy since it has a new home to go to. 
    • Detroit News breaks 143 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson.   The endorsement is the first time in the paper’s 143-year history it has endorsed someone other than the Republican Party’s nominee. http://www.breitbart.com/news/detroit-news-breaks-tradition-endorses-libertarian-gary-johnson/  
    • Kind of like Trump did Monday night.
    • Gets on a bunch of talk shows. Jumps another 5 points in the polls.. This just ain't working the way it's supposed to...
    • Looks like it's unanimous then. Good thing my vote goes to Hillary since it seems everyone thinks she is the best person for the job.
    • In your situation I'd try to be standing around the time you expect the deer to show up since it sounds like your upper body will have branch cover but not lose drawing ability. I usually set up off to the side and a little behind the tree from the direction I expect the deer to come from.  That way I get the full benefit of the cover of the tree I'm in. I stand a lot though; I rarely sit.  My ears tell me quite a bit but I'm usually looking around that tree all the time and my body is close to it.  I seem to be able to get away with quite a bit of movement and am rarely at 15 feet or higher.
