Lake Champlain Ice Fishing

Ice Fishing
On the Adirondack Coast, we don't just deal with winter, we embrace it.  And that's when you'll find some of the region's best fishing as Lake Champlain turns into a community unto itself. 

Experience an Adirondack tradition as colorful ice shanties begin to populate the white landscape in late December.  Visit Chazy Lake or Upper Chateaugay from December to April for northern pike, perch and crappies.  Lake trout, salmon, walleye and smelt bite from late January to March.
