Rankin Pond
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 to Route 28N and take a left and head toward Minerva. Continue for just under 10-miles to the trailhead on the right, parking is on the left just prior to the trailhead.  

Shoreline Fishing:

There is a limited amount of shoreline fishing but it’s decent in a couple spots. At the end of the trail which is 0.4 miles from the parking area, and slightly further along the shore on the east side via a short herd path.  

Boat access:

With a moderate 0.4 mile access trail this would be a tough haul to get a boat back in. However a lightweight canoe or kayak would be a great alternative for better fishing. At the deepest it is around 20 feet, but the best fishing is had from the deeper portion and the finger on the NE side, which is accessed best by boat. 

Fish Species Types:

Brook trout, bullhead

Special Regulations:

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