Balfour Lake Fishing Area
Your Adirondack Basecamp

Directions to Access Points:

From exit 28 in Schroon Lake follow I-87 north for one exit to the North Hudson exit, #29. From here follow Boreas Road west toward Newcomb. Continue all the way to Newcomb and Route 28N. Take a left onto 28N and continue for around 8.5-miles to the lake access on the right.

Shoreline Fishing:

There is a limited amount of shoreline fishing that can be accessed by foot; only at the state access point is this capable. Its limit to shoreline access limits the amount of decent shoreline fishing, but it is OK for smaller trout and bullhead. 

Boat access:

You can launch canoe, kayak from the state launch which is the best way to fish for trout. You may even have a bit of luck with bullhead from a boat, but fish the deeper portions of the lake near the middle for the larger trout.   

Fish Species Types:

Brook trout, bullhead

Special Regulations:

Please respect private property where it exists. 

Always Follow State fishing regulations and be sure to pick up a NYS Freshwater Fishing Guide at your local outfitters or regional NYSDEC office.
