Alexander Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Built in 1965 and currently owned by the Newark Valley School System, this 15-acre impoundment is completely surrounded by woods. Averaging 4 feet deep and dropping to a maximum of 15 feet, its floor is littered with tree stumps.
Don Alexander, the guy who built the place and for whom it’s named, says he originally stocked it with brook trout. However, largemouth bass and bluegills from a neighboring pond swam in on runoff, ate all the brookies, and seeded Alexander Lake with their own kind. Largemouth bass average 3 pounds, and many larger ones are available.
