The St. Regis Canoe Area is New York State's only designated canoe area where no motorized watercrafts are allowed, is great for anglers and campers.
Anglers are guaranteed a great wilderness experience and the chances to catch brook trout, lake trout, rainbow trout, and splake.
The area covers over 18,000 acres and 58 bodies of water. The traditional "wabbler and worm" technique is believed to be developed in these ponds, but spinners and nymphs work well too.
Some ponds that hold brook trout are accessible by the "Nine Carries" and "Seven Carries". Canoe launch sites at Little Clear Pond, Upper St. Regis Lake, Hoel Pond, and Long Pond provide great access. Lightweight canoes are recommended because some routes require long hikes.
You can also find 3 lean-tos in the area.
