P1010055 coverWell, the Fish are Finally Starting to Turn On!

Hi Guys,

Well, the fish are finally starting to turn on.  These photos are from just the last couple of days!!!!!!   The fall bite is getting later and later every year!!  It looks like in the future September is going to be a non fishing month.  Up until about a week ago, the water temps were still up in the 70’s.  Some colder weather finally came thru and dropped the water temperature into the low 60’s, just a few days ago.  Unfortunately even though the conditions were right, it was tough fishing until the last couple of days.  I believe it took the fish awhile to adjust to the sudden drop. Anyway, that my excuse or story and it sounds good and I’m sticking to it, haha.

We at the lodge and guide service really want our fisherman to have a great time and to catch a lot of fish.  WE NEVER TELL YOU THE FISHING IS GREAT WHEN IT IS NOT.  Most other guide services tell you it’s great fishing no matter when you want to come up and that just is not true.  I suppose they just want your money and don’t care if you come back or not.  90% of our fisherman come back to us every year and some two or three times.  We must be doing something right.

Our Arctic Trip 

These next set of photos are from our annual fishing trip up to Nunavi, Quebec, Canada.  Our host is my good friend Joe Stefanski of High Artic Adventures.  He has two camps which are fly in only.  the upper camp (which these photos are from) is absolutely teeming with giant brook trout, lake trout and artic char.  As I mentioned before, this is the only place I know where you can call it catching, not fishing.  A fish on almost every cast!!!!!!  Nothing like it any where else.  Just look at these magnificent fish!!!!!!!!  Joe’s lower camp (which is in the mid section of QUEBEC) doesn’t have the char but it has great brookie, lakers, and giant pike fishing.  Check out the high artic adventure link on our website.

Well,this was a short update but it let’s you know that the fall bite is “ON” and if you can make it up between now and mid November you are gonna catch some trophy smallmouths, pike and largemouths
Hope to hear from you guys soon.
Gotta go fishing!

The Guide Service

ACGS Boat on Lake Champlain

Adirondack-Champlain Guide Service specializes in Lake Champlain fishing for smallmouth bass in the trophy category. We have been guiding clients for over 36 years working out of our Lodge on Long Pond, located in Willsboro, NY. Our extensive knowledge of Adirondack fishing is unsurpassed, combined with our intimate knowledge of Lake Champlain has made us the number one guide service in the Northeast. Fishing in the Adirondack inland lakes is another service we provide and excel at. Adirondack fishing can be challenging and very rewarding plus you’re surrounded by so much natural splendor.

The Long Pond Lodge

TLodge_Picture_small.jpghe Lodge provides a vast array of fishing packages and can accommodate up to 18 people who come to fish. We provide meals and lodging packages, guide service only packages and full service packages where we combine all our services. We have support from 14 local guides who work with us to provide the best in service and knowledge. Long Pond, which is located directly behind our Lodge, is an excellent Adirondack Park fishery. It contains quality large and smallmouth bass, northern pike and a good mixture of large panfish. Rowboats are provided, free of charge, on all Lodge fishing packages. The fishing packages we offer for the pond do not include the guide service.  This is a great way to reduce your overall expenses and still enjoy a great fishing opportunity.  We do provide a detailed map that reflects all the hotspots and weedbeds. We also provide various ice fishing packages during the long winter on Long Pond. Learn more about the guide service or our fishing packages.
