I am in the process of planning a trip to visit my buddy who lives in the Lake George area of New York. We were thinking about doing a camping/fishing trip in the Pharaoh Lake Wilderness area. I have done some research, and have found the names of several ponds within the wilderness area that contain different trout species. Has anyone ever been to this area/fished it?

I've camped along Rt. 2 on the Boreas River. It's stocked by the road and has ponds downstream that hold natives. Also fished the Schroon in Riverbank just north of exit 24. Go further upstream to the dam and you can catch salmon that have been washed over. Brant Lake also has trout at both ends, and below the spillway on the outflow. I normally went in early June so I don't know how the conditions are later in the summer.

Prepare for the black flies. They are horrendous right now. Long sleeves. Better off buy a quality bug suit and head net. It's a must if you want to survive. Lol

Never been to that specific area but been to St Regis area as well as Bog River. Slammed rainbows in St Regis, right after ice out. Actually, the shady sides of the ponds still had ice floating in them, it was awesome.

Bog River - worst black flies ever. Full netting and still got eaten up good. Also caught the biggest large mouth I've ever seen in person though so it worked out.
