Wild, remote waterways nearby are known as the best in the region; rare, pristine, protected eco-systems chock full of small mouth bass and native brook trout.
At the turn of the last century and thru the 1950’s, Great Adirondack Guides like Alvah Dunning, Seth Pierce, & Pete Tromblee were based at Raquette Lake since this calm sport of fishing was legendary. An expert, companionable guide Jordan Ross has a deep understanding of where, when and what fish are biting.
Hike to a beaver meadow, fish the riffles and runs with a dry fly, paddle across the lake to cast a line in the tributaries. Victory is invariably wet, but sweet. Hold your beauties in hand (an Instagram moment) before releasing them back into the water.
Over dinner, you will undoubtedly have your boasting fish story to share and hopefully an adventurous photo that captures the moment.
