Little Tupper Lake and Rock Pond were part of the 1997 Whitney Land purchase by the state. The waters offer a great wilderness experience.
Anglers looking for a great fishing spot in the wilderness should try Little Tupper Lake and Rock Pond ind Hamilton County. The water and land was purchased by New York State in 1997 in the Whitney Land Purchase. There are no motorized boats in the water and brook trout flourish here. Little Tupper Lake houses a rare "heritage" strain of wild brook trout that have been there for over 12,000 years.
Both bodies of water are "no kill" waters and special regulations make artificial lures are the only lures allowed.
To access Rock Pond an angler must take a seven-mile canoe trip from the access site at Little Tupper Headquarters off Sabattis Road. Canoeists should be advised that Little Tupper Lake gets easily windswept.
