Big Brook

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30, near Long Lake in Hamilton County

Access for canoeing or fishing is from Route 30 north of Long Lake or from the northwest shore of Long Lake, about 1 mile from the Long Lake Town Beach.

Big Brook can be fished from two separate locations. The first is off Rte. 30 toward Tupper Lake, 3 miles north of the Long Lake Town Hall, where a short trail leads from the orange County markers to the brook. Brook trout fishing is excellent here in early spring and it remains good all season. The second place is where Big Brook empties into Long Lake, on the northwest shore, about 1 mile from the Long Lake Town Beach. As indicated on the map, this is a good place to fish for brown bullheads, especially in the spring and after dark. It is also a great spot for northern pike, and smallmouth bass.
