Print Email



Hey Everyone!

I hope this letter finds all of you safe and healthy. Looks like this year is going to be quite different.

I hope it straightens out soon, cause we have some fishin' to do.

It pretty much looks like April is a bust, and here in New York, the shutdown has been recently extended to May 15th. I know it isn't looking good, but our fingers are crossed for late May.

I would like to thank all of you who came up to ice fish this winter and all of you who came to see us at the shows. We have been completely booked up for the months of May and most of June. Those two months are half of our yearly business!!!! Again it isn't looking good for the spring this year so, if it doesn't happen, the next best months for "Action" are October and November. So, if worse comes to worse , you might want to think about moving your dates to those months or we can just move your dates to the same time next year? But I think we still have time to wait and see.

Here are the last ice fishing photos from this years ice fishing season.


Right now the rivers and streams are open , and the levels are great! They have already stocked the waters with trout and they are "letting you fish, as long keep, not 6 feet, but 1 rods length" away from each other. Up here you usually don't have to worry about crowding on the rivers, but this year you are going to have a lot of guys out of work, so-o-o-o!!? I`ve already been out trout fishing and it has been great. Here are some of my photos:


I guess in the next update, it is going to be all about me and the photos of MY fish. Hopefully, by then, we will be at the end of this crisis?!

Well guys, I guess that's it for now. With a lot of spare time on my hands, I'm going to work on my face book page and maybe a link to our blog address from our website. I've had it for a while now and really haven't done anything with it. With help from my kids, they are going to teach THE OLD GUY, so please keep checking our face book page.

Please be safe

- Pete

The Guide Service

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.
