Caroga Creek (5 minutes from Back To Basics) is a wonderful area for Rainbow and Brook Trout.

Each year, the last full weekend in June is designated as Free Fishing Days in New York State. During those two days, anyone can fish New York State waters, and no fishing license is required. This event started in 1991 to allow all people the opportunity to sample the incredible fishing New York State has to offer. Since no license is required, it is the perfect time to take a friend or relative fishing.
For the Kids: My First Fish Forms are available at the main house
"My First Fish Forms" are forms that children may fill out with the help of their parents during their first fishing excursion. When the form is sent to DEC the kids receive a small award for their first fish caught. A wonderful memory for a child to treasure year after year that someday will bring back the yesteryear's of their time well spent with that special someone (Back To Basics).
(Left) - Looking North at the remote White Lake surrounded with wildlife views in the remote Southern Adirondacks. Most of the shore lines here can be reached by canoe without getting wet.
(Right) - Looking South at the beautiful and remote White Lake. We did have a short 1/4 to a 1/2 mile trex to this remote and unpopulated area in the Southern Adirondack region. The lake was rewarding on a beautiful sunny day, with crystal clear waters. It did provide excellent condition for hooking the Brook Trout.
Alan Gessinger, the owner of the Arctic XC Ski Center, and I paddled the waters of White Lake in the Southern Adriondacks. Al is a well known artist and an experienced outdoorsman with many years of fishing, hunting, and camping experience. A great man to learn from. Al can also pack a canoe like no one I have ever seen. Thanks Al for a great trip.
