The area around Long Lake and Raquette Lake boast incredible water resources with over 225,000 acres of lakes and streams, and vast acreage of unspoiled forest. It is an outdoor recreational enthusiasts paradise. The waters in our area boast Bass, Walleye, Land-locked salmon, Pike, Brook. Lake and Heritage strain trout. The biggest lake trout in New York State was caught in the waters of Raquette in June 2009.
Fishing and hunting are part of the fiber of the wilderness experience, survival of the fit, rich in tradition and steeped in Adirondack History. Fish one of our eight derbies throughout the year or track a buck after the first snowfall. Getting back to man vs. nature is part of a traditional Long Lake experience. Both Long Lake and Raquette boast supreme hunting and fishing grounds.
