The much-anticipated spring fishing season will soon be arriving as we come towards the end of  yet another exciting winter.

Not only does our rustic 83-year-old Adirondack lodge provide guests with genuinely breathtaking mountain vistas, but we’re just a short walk or drive from seemingly endless hiking, hunting, fishing, and canoeing expeditions. Keep reading to learn more about the upcoming springtime fishing season near North River, NY.


Full-Day Guided Fishing Trips

Garnet Hill Lodge is proud to collaborate with the best fishing guides in Upstate New York: Adirondack Mountain & Stream Guide Service. Guests can join an equally relaxing and thrilling full-day guided fishing trip deep into the heart of the majestic Adirondack Mountains before retreating to the warmth and comfort of the Lodge for a delicious meal in our restaurant and a comfortable bed in one of our balcony rooms overlooking the mountains.  Contact us today to book your trip.


Springtime Fishing Excursions

The spring season is arguably the best time of year to fish for trophy trout. We have a saying around here: “When the flies are biting, so are the fish!” We highly recommend trying something new this spring as the Adirondack Mountain and Stream Guide Service provides both fly fishing and spinning! You won’t be disturbed during your fishing getaway as our tranquil ponds and lakes see very little traffic due to our remote location. Depending on where you throw a line, you’ll likely catch trout, bass, northern pike, and several other species.  


Things to Remember

We’ve pieced together some things to remember before packing for your upcoming spring fishing escape to Upstate New York:


  • Guided fishing trips must be booked at least seven days in advance.
  • Remember to pack waders. All other fishing gear will be provided.
  • Pack the essentials: sunglasses, sunscreen, hats, and a camera!
  • Anglers of all skill levels are welcome! Each guided tour is tailored to the skill sets of the group.
  • Purchase an online fishing license before your trip.
  • Plan a trip between April 15 and June 15 while the trophy trout swarm in our waters.
  • Be prepared for some moderate hiking as most excursions will venture into the dense forestry.


Charming Upstate New York Resorts

After an unforgettable, rewarding day spent trout fishing in the jaw-dropping Adirondack Mountains, retreat to Garnet Hill Lodge for an aromatic, crisp bottle of award-winning wine and a 28-day dry-aged New York strip at the on-site Log House Restaurant and Pub. Watch a glorious Adirondack sunset from the comfort of your private balcony before enjoying a soothing bath. Unlike most Upstate New York resorts, Garnet Hill Lodge has an on-site Outdoor Center for those who wish to also explore our beautiful wilderness in a variety of ways, including kayaking, hiking, and mountain biking, and don’t forget the Hudson River is just down the road for those looking for spring whitewater.  To book a well-deserved springtime fishing trip to one of the premier Upstate New York resorts, please give us a call today at 1-518-251-2444, or visit us online at Garnet-Hill.com.
