Fishing

Grab your hook, line, and sinker

Tupper Lake is perhaps one of the best places for fishing. We are fortunate to have Big Tupper Lake -- unique in that it is one of the very few lakes with two rivers flowing into it. At the southernmost tip of Big Tupper Lake, the Bog River cascades into the lake via Bog River Falls. At the northern end of the 9-mile lake, the majestic Raquette River flows from the east under the Moody Bridge and into Raquette Pond via a channel. The lake alone boasts over 28 miles of shoreline and a maximum depth of over 100 feet.

Other great fishing holes can be found on Simon Pond, along the Raquette River, and in Raquette Pond, which all have water connections to Big Tupper Lake. In addition, other popular spots to cast a line can be found at Piercefield Flow, Horseshoe Pond, Pitchfork Pond, and Little Wolf Pond, just to name a few. After all, we are nestled in the Adirondack Lakes Region, so the fishing options are only limited by your imagination. 

Cast away

For the best tips and fishing expertise, we invite you to contact one of our local Adirondack fishing guides. After a day on the lake, we know you will have worked up a mighty big appetite. Stop by one of our local restaurants or diners for a good meal and probably some great fishing stories as well!
