Kids Fishing Derbies June 6 & June 20th

The Long Lake Kids Fishing Derby will take place on Saturday, June 6th at Jennings Park Pond, across from the Long Lake Town Beach off of NYS Route 30. It’s between Raquette River Outfitters and the Adirondack Hotel. Kids fish all along the shoreline of the pond, and can even set up along the Nature Trail, a walking path winding around the pond connecting the Beach to the Long Lake Ball Field. Check out the path and find a cozy, secluded spot to fish.

Fun on the Nature Trail around Jennings Park Pond.

Fish for trout, bullhead, sunnies or whatever else you find in the pond. Ages/categories/largest fish prizes for trout, bullhead, sunfish, trout and sometimes weeds! Look up and see if you can catch your bobber on the power line, one year there was even a sneaker tied up around the wires above the causeway!

Look for great prizes for the kids. Everyone always walks away with something be it new fishing gear, lures, tackle boxes and fishing poles to gift certificates to local businesses.

And if that sparks your interest save the date, June 20th, Bass Fishing Opening Day, to head over to Raquette Lake, NY for the Junior Members Fishing Derby will be held on Raquette Lake for opening Day of bass season on Raquette Lake all day. Prizes and hot dogs for everyone! Call 315-354-4581 for more info.

Fishing is a great way to get outside, and connect with the water, mother nature and of course.. the elusive FISH! Now the question is… where is the best fishing hole on Raquette Lake? Anyone? We’ll just have to give it a try ourselves!

Enjoy snacks and sodas donated by the LL Fish and Game Club.

Registration is free and open to anyone.

Event from 9am – 3pm. See you there!

March Madness Begins

Extreme Cold Ice Fishing... Long Lake is way warmer!

Ice Fishing Derby on Sat, March 6th. Kids and adults team up to catch the sweetest, fattest prize of the Winter Season. Fish caught in waters in and around Long Lake are eligible for prizes. Never gone fishin’ in the winter before? Don’t let that stop you. Head down to the Spillway (that’s across from the town beach) Hook up with our fearless members of the Fish n Game club and get outfitted with tip ups, (adults must be licensed) and head out for the catch of the day. Food will be served. Cash prizes including consolation prizes.. just so the kiddies don’t cry (or the parents for that matter)

Sunday, March 6th is the final race of the New York State Vintage Snosled racing circuit. This is truly a ballsy spectator sport. Got fear? You’ll love watching these sleds pound the ice track at speeds of the most heart pumping caliber. Check out the boards to see if you know someone racing. Our own Gabe Farr completes his tour this season. Come out and root for the Long Lake team!

Got snowmobiles. We still have trails alive. Yes we do have some bare spots, but waa waa waa… just do it. So you may hit some bare spots on some well traveled places, just pack the tools and get yinnin’ The season isn’t over yet and Long Lake still offers miles and miles of free, GROOMED trails – thru the woods… best ride in the Adirondacks – if you don’t believe it.. it’s true. Ya dats rite. Love the kick ass thrill of the ride… you’ll still have fun… I promise. If you don’t.. waaa waaa waaa…

Park the trailer at Kickerville Mobil and gear yourself up. Visit all the local eateries, create your own adventure. Chapter one… LL Diner/Owl’s Head Pub.. get the eggs on… bust up the Powerline for a midday treat at Quack’s Long View Wilderness Lodge, do a Chinese fire drill and head back to the oldest working Hotel in the Adirondacks (that’d be the Adirondack Hotel)

Want to hear birds… just go outside. They are starting to sing and even tho Long Lakers eagerly anticipate the onslaught of mud season.. well guess what… Winter is NOT OVAH yet! Go skiing, snowshoing, go sledding… (the Geiger Ice rink is kind of out of commission.. sorry about that.. can’t help the beating sun) but the sledding hill rocks…

Corn on OUT! C You Soon…
