North Elba

Hi,
Coming up next weekend to do some hiking and staying near North Elba. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to do a little fishing? Something quick, no boat... Thanks

With such a limited amount of information on what kind of fishing and a fairly large area describing where you are going, easiest access is likely the West Branch, waders will be necessary for a lot of it. If you just wan to still fish or cast lures, go down to the village park in Wilmington and fish Lake Everest.

Another alternative is to drive over to the Saranac River, and fish any one of the many pull-offs. A quick review of Google Maps is helpful. Id start down around Franklin Falls.

The Saranac gets much less pressure than the AuSable.

Yes, just looking to cast from a bank somewhere, no waders. Thanks for the info.

Franklin Falls Reservoir has a lot of access as described above, walleyes bass and Northerns. Be aware that there is a consumption advisory for the fish there, but there is one for bass and perch in almost anything in the 'dacks anymore. If you are more interested in trout, I would still say look for Lake Everest, I've been up there during peak season (July 4th time) and had no one else fishing there. Calm water no waders or boat necessary. If you are staying in Placid, Wilmington is not far and is a very pretty drive (but what isn't up there!)

Don't forget to check your license, if you are like me and always had to replace around October 1 because of the old " fixed year", it will be expiring soon.
