Carry Falls, Stark Falls, Blake Falls, Rainbow Falls, Five Falls, and South Colton Reservoirs Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The 3,170-acre Carry Falls Reservoir averages 18 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 50 feet; its shoreline is almost entirely forested. The 704-acre Stark Falls Reservoir averages 24 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 52 feet. The 710-acre Blake Falls Reservoir averages 7 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 45 feet. The large bays are relatively shallow; the deepest part is a narrow, 0.5-mile-long trench right in the middle. The 717-acre Rainbow Falls Reservoir's south shore is heavily developed in cottages, but the north shore is heavily wooded. It averages 7 feet deep, drops to a maximum depth of 45 feet, and has a huge island. The smallest of the Raquette River impoundments, Five Falls Reservoir is shallow, features vast weed beds, and has little shoreline development—characteristics that make it look more like a beaver pond than a hydroelectric reservoir. Almost entirely in private hands, the 230-acre South Colton Reservoir is ringed by cottages. It averages 14 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 47 feet. Key species: Tiger muskie, northern pike, walleye, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and brown bullhead."
