Long Pond

Area: 146 acres
Shoreline Length: 3.2 miles
Max Depth: 72 Feet
Mean Depth: 25 Feet

Fish Species:

Brook Trout, Brown Bullhead, Pumpkinseed, Golden Shiner, Creek Chubsucker

Fishing:

Most anglers target brook trout in this pond. Like most Adirondack waters, early season trout fishing should target near shore areas with some cover. As water warms throughout the summer, fish will be hanging close to the thermocline at around 20 feet. Trolling with weighted line is an effective technique. While some panfish are present, they tend to be small in size.

Regulations:

Statewide Angling Regulations apply.
