Lake Adirondack

Introduction

Lake Adirondack is located within the Village of Indian Lake and is a warm water fishery. The lake was stocked with sterile triploid grass carp a few years ago to control the abundance of the aquatic vegetation. By doing this, the town has helped to improve recreational opportunities on the lake.

Access

There is a small, town-owned launch at Byron Park on Route 28. This park also provides areas to fish from shore and a picnic spot.

Fishing

Fish found within this lake include: largemouth bass, northern pike, smallmouth bass, brown bullhead, yellow perch, grass carp and rock bass. Lake Adirondack has had reports of large northern pike being captured. Surveys have shown that the yellow perch, brown bullhead, and rock bass populations all are in good condition. The grass carp in Lake Adirondack cannot be kept if caught. Lake Adirondack is a good spot to take the kids fishing and hosts an annual kids derby sponsored by the local fish and game club.

Regulations

Statewide angling regulations apply except for largemouth and smallmouth bass for which special fishing regulations apply. Ice fishing is permitted on Lake Adirondack.
