Round Lake Whitney Wilderness Fishing

One more.....Is Round Lake in the Whitney Wilderness a warm water bass type fishery or a cold water trout fishery? Planning a solo canoe camping fishing trip for Thursday through Labor Day at the end of the month but have not decided where, but I want to know what kind of tackle to bring if I decide to go there....

Also, since it is a bigger lake and I will have a pack canoe, does it get really windy and potentially dangerous?


Paddle Faster!!! I hear banjo music.....

"Little Tupper Lake, Round Lake and Rock Pond are the home waters of a unique "heritage" strain of brook trout known as the Little Tupper strain. Largemouth bass now populate all three of these waters and have had a negative impact on the brook trout population."

It looks like it has a SW-NE orientation, so it is likely to get rough on windy days.

Read the website, all the information is there.

I've been there when wind was blowing so hard that the access paddle on the small corridor waterway that connects Round Lake to Little Tupper was seriously difficult to make headway with tandem paddlers. That said, the swells on the Lake weren't as bad as they were on Little Tupper (which was the reason we were paddling Round and not Little Tupper). We stayed along the shoreline somewhat protected from the wind and managed to paddle the circumference. I would imagine that was pretty much the worst case for wind except for a nasty nasty storm in which case you wouldn't want to be on the water anyway.

Have caught lots of bass there (in shallower portions) during June canoe/camping trips. Beautiful lake. Have never been there later in season, but met a guy who said he does well with trout in deeper portions of lake, in cooler months near outlet.
