Short Take: 271,000 acres; both clear and dingy water, weedy shallows, islands, rocky bluffs, open water. Some believe that if the French explorer Samuel de Champlain had stayed long enough to sample the bass fishing at the massive 125-mile-long lake he discovered and named after himself in 1609, he would never have left. Many anglers who fish this beautiful New England lake today honestly believe they’re catching bass that have never seen an artificial lure, an astounding revelation in this day and age. It is so big, and so divided by islands, points, and bays, that many actually consider this to be several different lakes. The easiest way to describe Champlain is by describing prominent features or landmarks. Primary Species: Smallmouth and largemouth bass.
