Utowana Lake

Fishing

Directions to Access Points:

From the intersection of Route 28 and Route 30 follow Route 28 toward Raquette Lake. Continue for over 6-miles to a small dirt pull-off on the right hand side, look for a large boulder set back in the woods near the shore.

Shoreline Fishing:

Most of the shore is private property so you need to keep the shoreline fishing to near this area. It is limited, but decent for brook trout and panfish.

Boat access:

You can launch a canoe or kayak from this same area; otherwise you will need to come in from Blue Mountain through Eagle Lake and into the lake from the east. Fish for bass in the deeper portion of the lake on the eastern end. The bays ad inlets provide cooler water for bullhead fishing and brookies.

Fish Species Types:

Brook Trout, Bullhead, panfish, perch, smallmouth bass

Special Regulations:

Much of the shore is private property, please respect. State land exists near the lean-to and at the above mentioned access off Route 28.
Always Follow State fishing regulations and be sure to pick up a NYS Freshwater Fishing Guide at your local outfitters or regional NYSDEC office.

Paddling

This is a peaceful paddle with a lean-to on the opposite shore, for lunch or a weekend of camping. A short paddle downstream before the waterway becomes too narrow, but there is a portage around this spot that will get you to better waters to paddle into Raquette Lake. If you head upstream you can easily go into Eagle Lake and then Blue Mountain Lake. The shallow nature of this lake gives it a feel unlike many other lakes in the Adirondacks.
Shoreline length

The shoreline is 4.7 miles long, 300 acres in size, and a mean depth of 12 feet.
How to get there

From the intersection of Route 28 and Route 30, follow Route 28 toward Raquette Lake. Continue for over 6 miles to a small dirt pull-off on the right — look for a large boulder set back in the woods near the shore.
Type of launch

Grassy, shallow, and with a 200 foot carry down an embankment to a footpath.
Type of Water

This is a fairly well sheltered pond where wind is not much of an issue. While motorboats are not forbidden the chances of seeing one are very small.
