Fishing Tips

Casting a minnow or worm under a bobber is a great way to catch a variety of fish species. Try varying the depth until you begin catching fish. Spinnerbaits and minnow-imitating plugs are also good bets here. Learn more about freshwater bait and lures.

How Do I Get There?

The access area is just off of US Route 2 where it crosses from Vermont to New York.
