Directions to Access Points:
From the intersection of Route 74 and Route 9N in Ticonderoga follow Route 74 west toward Schroon Lake. Continue to the small Hamlet of Eagle Lake and cross over the bridge separating the two portions of the lake. In roughly 0.25 miles there is a launch on the left.
There is a decent amount of shoreline fishing on this lake. The long shores near the launch area, on the eastern end near the campsite, and from near the bridge on Route 74. Much of the remaining shore is private property. Fish for bass at the launch area near the lily pads. Panfish and perch can be caught jsy about anywhere from shore.
The only public boat access is from Route 74 on the southwestern bay. The best boat fishing is in the main body of water and around the islands or in the bays especially if you are search of bass. Trolling is the best method for northern pike and the northern shore is the spot. Cast a night crawler into the shallows if you wish to have a good time with perch, and some of the perch are quite substantial in size.
Fish Species Types:
Smallmouth bass, northern pike, panfish, bullhead, brown trout, perch, crappie
