Chateaugay River

Franklin County, NY


The Chateaugay River is a great location in the Adirondacks for anglers to find brook, rainbow, and brown trout.

 Anglers looking for multiple trout species in the Adirondacks should visit the Chateaugay River. Betwern the Forge Dam and High Falls, you can find brook, rainbow, and brown trout. Anglers can access this section at Forge Dam located on the upper section of the river. The one-mile stretch down to County Route 24 is great for finding all three species, wild and stocked fish. 

The lower section of the Chateaugay River, from High Falls to the Canadian border, has 2 good access spots. One is located on Sam Cook Road near the Canadian border, the other is located next to the Route 11 bridge in Chateaugay. There is a heavily stocked area a mile and a half long upstream from High Falls. Stockings include two-year old browns. 

For all the access spots for the Chateaugay River, check out the DEC website.
