Fishing

Big Tupper Lake

This is perhaps one of the best for all around fishing you could ever hope to find.  We are fortunate to have this unique lake sine it is one of the very few in the United States with two rivers flowing into it.  The beautiful falls of the Bog River near the American Legional Camp is at one end.  The majestic Raquette River flows from the est under the Moody Bridge and into the Raquette Pond via a channel to Big Tupper Lake.  A shoreline of over 28 1/2 miles surrounds this lake.  Lake Depth-100 feet.

Fish Species:

Bass
Walleye
Northern Pike
Bullhead
Lake Trout
Whitefish
Salmon
Pan Fish
Smelt
Perch

 

Simond Pond

Boat launches to Simond Pond are suggested.  This can be done by going on Simond Pond Road at Moody Bridge and using the Tupper Lake Rod & Gun Club Boat Launch or from Moody Road launch on Route 30.  Another way is from the Raquette River launch from Route 3 & 30 northest of the village approximately 3 miles.  Depths to 20 feet.

Fish Species:

Northern Pike
Bass
Walleye

Raquette Pond

The village of Tupper Lake Municipal Park, Grandstand, Firemen events Rd, and Rotary Pavilion areas are on a portion of the pond shoreline.  There are public boat launches near the Rotary Pavilion and on Route 30 known as Moody Road.  Fishing along the shoreline is popular.  Depths to 20 feet.

Panther Pond

This pond is located six miles east of Tupper Lake.  The small pond, approximately 1/4 mile in circumference, is spring fed.  It has small inlet running in under the highway with the pond outlet nil, in as much as it overflows a swampy area in the south end.

 

Pitchfork Pond

Located near the village limits on highway 3 West, you will find it by turning at the Haymeadow Pond sign across from the cemetary area; and this ond is your spot for speckled and brown trout.  Of all the ponds in the Adirondacks, it is perhaps one of the easiet to launch a boat since it is right next to the road.  It can be fished from the shoreline or a boat; and from this spring fed pond, daily limits have been taken almost anyplace.

 

Little Wolf Pond

This is where you will find Little Wolf Beach camping and picnic area with a boat launch off of Route 3 West not far from Pitchfork Pond.

Fish Species:

Bass
Great Northern
Walleye
Panfish
