Featured Spot: Ice Fishing on Chazy Lake

Chazy Lake courtesy Adirondack AtlasChazy Lake is approximately 1,800 acres in size, runs 3.5 miles in length, and has a maximum depth of 72 feet. Chazy Lake is managed under the Chazy Highlands Wild Forest and is set in the valley between Lyon and Ellenburg Mountain providing excellent mountain views and great fishing opportunities.

Ice fishing is permitted on Chazy Lake which holds lake trout and landlocked salmon. The best fishing is said to be concentrated in the center of the lake over the deepest water.

Ice anglers should exercise extreme caution when traveling out on ice by ensuring the ice is thick enough to carry the weight of a person and equipment. More on ice fishing safety can be found on DEC’s website.

Access the lake on the southeastern side from the Wilfred King Road Parking Area (44.730978, -73.811837) which has space for up to five vehicles. There is a launch site from an old camp that can be used to get on the ice.

Featured spots are recommended by DEC.
