Directions to Access Points:
From the intersection of Route 3 and Route 30 in Tupper Lake follow Route 3 toward Piercefield. Continue to the small hamlet of Piercefield and locate the road just over the Raquette River on the left. This is the perfect access for shore fishing and boat access.
Shoreline fishing from this location is very popular especially from the platform of the old bridge. Additional shoreline fishing is near the sand boat launch area, but limited to these two locations due to adequate efficient shoreline.
This boat access is best for smaller outboard motor boats it is not adequate for large boats. Fishing from the deep portion of the flow which is part of the Raquette River can bring in some serious surprises and some decent fishing outcomes. The eastern portion of the lake tends to hold the walleye, and the deep portions of the lake near the center are a great place for bass.
Fish Species Types:
Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Bullhead, Panfish, Walleye
Much of the shore is private property, please respect private property.
Always Follow State fishing regulations and be sure to pick up a NYS Freshwater Fishing Guide at your local outfitters or regional NYSDEC office.
