Tupper Lake, Raquette Lake, Simon Pond, and Piercefield Flow Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Covering roughly 4,000 acres, averaging 39 feet deep, and having a maximum depth of 100 feet, half of the two-story shoreline of Tupper Lake is heavily developed and includes the village of Tupper Lake, one of the largest in the Adirondacks, on its northeastern corner. Although Raquette Pond is impossible to differentiate from the main lake, it was created by a dam built on the Raquette River, a couple of miles downstream of Tupper Lake’s outlet. Covering 1,180 acres, it averages 5 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 12 feet. The 689-acre Simon Pond averages 10 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 36 feet. It is connected to Tupper Lake by a canal-like, navigable channel. The 365-acre Piercefield Flow averages 7 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 50 feet. Surrounded by forest, it is littered with numerous, barely submerged stumps. Key species: Northern pike, walleye, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, lake trout, landlocked Atlantic salmon, cisco, walleye, and yellow perch."
