Anyone have any suggestions for backcountry lakes in upstate New York or New England with populations of smallmouths and pike? Would like to take kayaks so not too far off the grid would be preferred. Just trying to avoid crowds
I can recommend remote wilderness lakes and ponds but I'm not sure if there are smallmouths or pike in them. I can try to find out for you but need more info first.
What do you mean by off the grid? No carries/portages I presume?
I found in order to avoid the crowds there is usually a carry involved, or by going in "the off season".
Are you camping.....kayak camping, car camping, campgrounds???
Thanks! Any info is appreciated. Looks like there is no shortage of lakes. Having never been there not sure what to expect or where to start. Definetly want to chase some smallies. Never caught a pike, that would just be a bonus but not required.
