Directions to Access Points:
From Exit 28 on Interstate 87, take Route 9 toward Schroon Lake. In 0.6 mile take a left onto Alder Meadow Road. Follow this for 3.8 miles to the Gull Pond Trail on the left. Park here.
Shoreline Fishing: There is a 0.4 mile hike along a marked foot trail to access this pond. It's well worth the added effort to have a pond all to yourself, and most of the shore can be used for fishing.
Boat Access: None without a portage. It would ideal to have a canoe to fish this pond in order to reach the deepest section, but it is not necessary. The trout tend to hang out more in the deeper waters during the hot months.
- Use the boulders at the back end of the pond to access the deepest part of the pond. A herd path around the south end will get you there.
- Use the shallows for early season trout but the deeper area is for the summertime.
Fish Species Types: Brook trout, bullhead
Special Regulations: Always follow New York state fishing regulations and be sure to pick up a NYS Freshwater Fishing Guide at your local outfitters or regional NYSDEC office.
