9 Day Canoe Camping And Fishing Trip To The Saranac Lakes
10 Attachment(s)
I just got home yesterday from an amazing 9 days and 8 nights spent paddling and fishing around Lower and Middle Saranac Lake. I had plans to end the trip on Upper Saranac but the wind on Middle Saranac was whipping up so fierce on my last few days that I decided not to chance it.

I went out in search of some Northern Pike, but it seems the Smallmouth Bass were a lot more interested in my lures than the Pike. I still managed to find a few nice Northern though. The fishing, combined with the amazing campsites, awesome paddling and gorgeous views made for an all around memorable trip.

Unlike the majority of my trips, this was not much of a solo sojourn. My girlfriend Stephanie joined me for the first few days, and we camped with some friends near Loon Bay on Lower Saranac. I was solo for a few days after they all left and then later met some of my other buddies at the lean-to near the Narrows on Lower Saranac for a few more days. Once they took off I had a final day and night of solitude on the windy Middle Saranac before heading home.

Below you will find a few quick pictures snapped from my phone and stills from the video.

Thanks for checking out my trip and pictures guys! Not sure what my next extended adventure will be. Was thinking about doing a fishing trip from Old Forge to Saranac Lake as my next Adirondack trip, and then will be heading up the St Lawrence River for a week to try and hunt down some big Pike and Muskie.

@Stillhunter the blackflies and mosquitos were definitely out. For whatever reason, they never seem to bite me though. It infuriated my girlfriend to no end last year when she would get swarmed while on a brief stint outside the tent, but I can sit and fish for hours with no spray or deterrent.
