La Chute River

Emptying Lake George into Lake Champlain, the LaChute River flows through Ticonderoga and is home to a number of species of fish. With five waterfalls along its 3.5 mile length, it can be a challenge to navigate, but access is good and includes tow handicapped access areas- at the lower falls and the hydro project.

The state stocks brown trout here later in the spring, while Essex County adds larger rainbows a bit earlier in the year. Anglers will also find the bass, sunfish, perch and pike of Lakes George and Champlain. Access can be found along the LaChute River Walk.
