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
Fish Creek Ponds in the Adirondacks. Its a nice campground, no electric but not really ruffing it either. Its right off Upper Saranac Lake which is not exactly back country but has very good fishing for smallies and pike. However from the campground you could kayak into protected waters where there are no gas or electric motors allowed, that have very good fishing for both species.
