Adirondacks
« on: Mar 14, 2010, 09:29 AM »
I was thinking about making a trip to the Adirondacks for a little back packing and trout fishing. I was wondering if you guys had any tips as to an area that has some nice streams and trout ponds that are a good hike in. I would not mind hiking in for two or three days, as long as I could fish a little along the way. Also, around what time can I expect these ponds to be free of ice? Any help is greatly appreciated!

hey keva,  im by no means an expert on adks trout fishing but we go up to my buddies camp numerous times a year in Indian Lake.  We seem to do pretty good with trout around that area, the hudson headwaters, cedar river and flow are our usual spots.  there are a ton of ponds, lakes and streams around that area.  i know Indian Lake has a bunch of primitive campsites run by the state that are free just need to sign in.  maybe you could get a campsite as a base of operations to fish out of.  Im sure there are plenty of other good places to go but this is the only place im that familiar with.  i dont know when the ice will be off.  we went icefishing up there a couple weeks ago and there were !8" of ice.

the pharaoh lakes area can be a great spot to hike, camp and fish... lots of ponds and lakes that hold browns, rainbows and brooks, i believe theres quite a few lean-toos as well... late april- early may is good time (also before the black flies get bad)

Check out the Five Ponds Wilderness Area and the Cranberry Lake Wild Forest. They are all natives up there and FYI the old state record brookie came out of the five ponds wilderness area. In the Cranberry Lake wild forest try Curtis Pond, or Dog Pond, and for the Five ponds area try Olmstead Pond, Cowhorn Pond, or the actual Five ponds for which the area is named for. Most of these ponds are located along the Cranberry Lake 50. If you go up there make sure you have a blood transfusion with you ready to go because you will need it from all the blackflies and mosquito bites!! Good Luck.

So true about the ADKs in the spring. A bug suit and cans of OFF! is a must.  ;)

Just a note, don't plan on a boat to use. DEC spent two months pulling them, including use of helicopter....
So where was that in the budget??? Heard they got between 100-200 boats. Good news is if you have the info of your you can buy it back!!!!

Really?!?! All the ECO's and Ranger I worked with didn't have a problem with stashed canoes, only had a problem with them being chained....

get a map and a stocking list and have at it.

hope there's some boats left... if people just left theirs (and the ones they borrow) back into the woods a mite bit there'd be no problem.

try moose river plains,lots of ponds ,streams and camping.most boats are removed because they are damaged.people chained them,so others damaged them.thats what started the removal.a few bad incidents ruin it for all,isnt that always the way!
