As the leaves start to change their color the water on the surface of Lake George cools to 68 degrees. We are still finding some lake trout off Dome Island in 130-180 feet of water. Also some lake trout are from Refuge Island to Huckleberry Island and in the mouth of the narrows. Salmon are showing up also but are slow. With the natural instinct to spawn the salmon seem to be going through the motions, of course with no where to go in a land locked lake they hang in front of the different feeder streams and attempt the impossible. Feeding at this time is not their first priority. Shortly as the water cools to below 60 we will see the action move back up to the surface. Storm jr thundersticks in sugar coat rainbow, and purple and black, and mooselook wobbler in blaze orange, and dodger with a worm are taking our fish.

Bass fishing is still productive at this time but as the water temperatures lower they will slow in their activity. Move around and you can still find many hungry fish... Lake George is one of the north countries finest grand slam fishing hot spots in the northeast. With breathtaking views and pristine waters, you will experience some of the most exciting sport fishing you will encounter anywhere. Beautiful Lake George is 35 miles long and runs through the northeast section of the Adirondack Park. With over 300 islands the lake runs to depths of 190 feet.
